Queensland elective surgery wait list blowout

Published:

A new report released today by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare shows Queensland hospital waiting lists blowing out under the Palaszczuk Labor Government.

LNP Shadow Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Ros Bates said the report was more evidence of Annastacia Palaszczuk’s broken promises and wrong priorities on health.

“Queensland’s surgery wait time is one of the worst in Australia and higher than the national average under Labor,” Ms Bates said.

“Hospital admissions for surgery have increased by 12 per cent since 2014/15, but surgery wait times have blown out by 92 per cent.

“Queensland was leading the nation five years ago under the LNP.

“While Annastacia Palaszczuk wastes money on failed IT systems and changing hospital names, patients are waiting longer for life-saving surgery.

“As a nurse I know that patients on wait lists can suffer more health issues and conditions can get worse.

“Queenslanders have had enough of Labor’s endless excuses and political blame games.

“When it comes to providing better health services, Queenslanders can’t trust Labor.

“The LNP has a plan to get waiting lists under control and our hospitals working.

“The LNP will re-focus our public health system on patient outcomes and better patient care.

“We will ensure our hard-working nurses, doctors and paramedics have the support they need on the front line.

“The LNP will partner with the private sector to reduce waiting lists and ensure surgeries are completed on time.

“Patient care will be our number one priority.”
