When it comes to providing better health services, Labor's priorities are all wrong.
There's no better example than Annastacia Palaszczuk wasting taxpayers money renaming the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital, rather than providing better care for our sickest kids.
We also have a bush baby crisis, with cuts to regional maternity services.
Last week the LNP moved to stop the renaming – in legislation at least – in the Parliament.
The latest code yellow crisis in South-East Queensland was the latest in a long list of Labor's health crisis.
Queenslanders deserve a world class public health system no matter where they live.
At the last state election, Annastacia Palaszczuk promised better local health services, but things have gone backwards.
Major public hospitals are at breaking point, with promised hospital upgrades years away from completion.
Ambulance ramping is skyrocketing, emergency departments are overcrowded and waiting times are blowing out.
These aren't just numbers in a spreadsheet – it is your mother, or sister or close family friend.
As a nurse, I understand that our hard working doctors, nurses and midwives need more help on the frontline to improve patient care.
It's time for Annastacia Palaszczuk and Labor to put patient care as their number one priority.
