Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens Health spokesperson
The combined effect of the Federal and State Liberal governments has meant a loss of hundreds of millions of dollars from Tasmania's health system.
The Federal government’s own estimates are that Tasmania will be taking home at least $52M less a year from 1 July 2017. The State Liberals have cut $160M since they came to office.
The “new spends” in health that Minister Ferguson proclaims are just the result of shifting money sideways. This goes a long way to explain why our hospitals are in crisis.
