Save Medicare

Malcolm Turnbull and the Liberals are destroying Medicare, implementing a GP-tax by stealth which is driving bulk billing down and out-of-pocket costs up.

They are ripping funding from pathology and diagnostic imaging, making people with chronic illnesses pay more for vital tests and scans.

Malcolm Turnbull is already making health care even more unaffordable for those who need it most – their attack on Medicare will hurt families already struggling with the cost of living and wreck our universal health care system.

The LNP have cut $57 billion of funding from our public hospitals which are already under pressure.

Figures from the independent Parliamentary Budget Office show these cuts affect every hospital in every State and Territory; $10.7 billion in Queensland alone.

This will have a real impact on patients with increasing emergency waiting times, longer waits for elective surgery, and fewer hospital beds

The Queensland Health Department says the cuts are the equivalent of 4,500 doctors, nurses and allied health practitioners

They simply don't believe that investing in our health care is important
