NSW State Election And Better Access To Hospital Care

The Beagle Editor, The TUROSS HEAD PROGRESS ASSOCIATION Inc (THPA), on behalf of its community, is tired of the years of lack of transparency, spin and misleading information in relation to local access to quality healthcare. The THPA is now taking a proactive role by appointing two highly experienced committee members to work towards solutions. THPA will build on the outstanding efforts of Dr. Michael Holland and Fitzroy and Mylene Boulting (organisers of 3 large scale petitions for improved hospital clinical services). The long term lack of access to local public hospital care compared to the level of care available to metropolitan communities is one of the most important issues facing our South Coast community in the upcoming NSW election. NSW governments, Lib/Nat and Labor, have over many decades treated rural and regional healthcare with a combination of indifference and neglect leading up to the recent NSW Parliamentary Regional and Rural Hospital enquiry with its devastating negative findings. The commitment to building a new hospital in Moruya by the current government is a big step forward despite being long overdue. With regard to improving clinical services there is a small, faint light at the end of the political tunnel with both major parties acknowledging the deficits in rural/regional healthcare and very, very faint hints at improving those clinical services but without any clear proposals. The THPA's task is to get clear and consistent action statements prior to the election from all political parties and SNSWLHD so that all voters can make an informed decision. Voting decisions in the 2023 NSW election will determine hospital care for at least 20 years into the future. Starting early next year THPA will provide frequent updates of any changes right up until the election.
