The LNP's costings show nurses, doctors, and other health professionals will again be the first to lose their jobs as Tim Nicholls cuts the jobs of up to 20,000 government workers – almost 6000 more than he did as Campbell Newman's Treasurer.
 
The LNP have revealed they will seek cut $1.631 billion over three years from across government including Queensland Health.
 
As Labor has been warning, Tim Nicholls and Scott Emerson are going to revisit and replay the cuts and sackings they inflicted on Queensland Health.
 
Scott Emerson delivered the proof in black and white.
 
In 2012, the LNP promised to slash $1.206 billion and that resulted in 14,000 government workers, including 4400 from our hospitals and other health services losing their jobs.
 
The LNP promised no forced redundancies in 2012 and the Newman-Nicholls Government cut 14,000 in their first Budget.
 
A re-elected Palaszczuk Government will employ an additional 3500 nurses and midwives, and an extra 3700 teachers.
 
The LNP has made no commitment to additional nurses or teachers. The LNP will cut the health budget and cut health jobs.
