No matter if the sods don't show: a community sod will still be turned


Marie Boulting of the group ONE- One New Eurobodalla Level 4 Regional hospital says: "It was totally right to be at the Moruya Markets this morning: "So many of you came to the ONE stand, and asked where is the hospital project at? When does it open? Where is the Local Radiotherapy Unit? "Will we have Orthopaedic services? Will the Maternity be bigger? Will the ICU be up and running at level 4 when the hospital doors open? and many, many other questions.

"So we’ll be at the Moruya markets again and again, for as long as necessary, until NSW Health and their Minister(s) ANSWER our community’s questions CLEARLY.

"And of course, we will try and get these answers from the Health Minister(s) if/when they appear in Moruya for the phantom “Sod Turning” event they keep announcing… and then seem to have cold feet about. (We wonder why?)"

"The Eurobodalla community are ‘shovel ready’ and have been for the last 3 years. So let’s get on with it please: "Come and join us on Monday, bring a shovel or spade or a placard, and help the Minister(s) and NSW Health to start the construction work at the new hospital site (10am – at the new hospital end of Keightley and Maunsell Streets Monday 6th 2023).

"Hospitals and Healthcare (especially Radiotherapy) should always be above politics".
