Health minister responds on Tweed Hospital

Labor’s lies know no bounds. The $48 million upgrade of The Tweed Hospital has nothing to do with the proposed lease of the state’s poles and wires.

It is funded under our capital works budget and will be delivered under a re-elected NSW Liberals & Nationals Government.

Labor had 16 years to upgrade The Tweed Hospital but sat on its hands while it – along with countless other rural and regional hospitals – was outgrown by its community.

I can assure the community there is no $3 billion cut to the health system – this is another Labor lie. In fact, we have increased the health budget by $3.2 billion since Labor was in office.

Labor will always put politics before patients. In stark contrast, the NSW Liberals and Nationals are putting patient care first by delivering enhanced health services for rural and regional communities.

Jillian Skinner, NSW Health Minister
