Colonel Hanson not impressed by elective surgery improvements

johnboy 22 June 2011

The Liberals Jeremy Hanson is not jumping for joy over Katy Gallagher’s announced improvements to elective surgery waiting lists.

“Katy Gallagher is now claiming that elective surgery is now a high priority for her
government but for too long she has allowed thousands of Canberrans to wait too
long for important surgery, often in pain.

“It seems that after 10 years of neglect Katy Gallagher and ACT Labor are finally waking up to the crisis they have created in elective surgery. It is too late for many people who have suffered needlessly but I welcome Katy Gallagher’s realisation that elective surgery waiting times should be a priority for her government,” Mr Hanson concluded.

Someone needs to work on graciousness in victory?
