Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens' Health spokesperson
The Liberals have delivered another serious blow to the public health service with the closure of Palliative Care Tasmania. Closure of the only palliative care support and education service in Tasmania will have untold effects.
This is a gross government failure and will force dying Tasmanians and their families to use hospital services, rather than having their final days in their own home.
In the last four years Palliative Care Tasmania has helped thousands of Tasmanians through death literacy.
