Emergency departments stretchered to the limit under Labor

Paramedics and patients stranded in overflowing emergency departments are evidence of the Palaszczuk Labor Government's unending health crisis.

LNP Leader Deb Frecklington said the leaked images* revealed the chaos inside our hospital corridors Annastacia Palaszczuk doesn't want the public to see.

"These pictures show the real life consequences of the Palaszczuk Labor Government's health crisis," Ms Frecklington said.

"The pictures and figures don't lie – Labor can't run the health system.

"Code yellows are the norm, ramping has skyrocketed, there aren't enough beds – it's a debacle.

"Our hard-working health professionals save lives but they're overstretched under Labor.

"It's shocking 29 per cent of patients arriving at the Princess Alexandra Hospital spend more than 30 minutes stuck on ambulance stretchers before being admitted to the emergency department.

"The rate was 9 per cent under the previous LNP Government."

Ms Frecklington said Queenslanders were suffering because Labor can't run the health system and urgent action was needed.

"Queensland Health has been deteriorating ever since Annastacia Palaszczuk took office," Ms Frecklington said.

"Labor have bungled major health IT upgrades, ignored overcrowding and shut down regional maternity wards.

"Queensland is 'Miles away' from a world class health system under the Palaszczuk Labor Government.

"If Annastacia Palaszczuk had a shred of decency she would sack Steven Miles."
