Last week The honourable Geoff Provest stated in the Daily News that the emergency department at the existing Tweed Heads Hospital would remain open once the new Tweed Valley Hospital is operational.
Every Tweed Shire resident deserves to know if this is the truth, or another fabrication fed by a politician just one month out from an election. In no other forum has this been stated, in fact every statement from NSW Health says that all services will transfer to the new hospital when completed.
The importance of maintaining a functioning emergency department cannot be overestimated.
We need to know the truth here, so please Mr Provest tell us whether your statement that the emergency department will remain open is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God!
