Team Katy is throwing another bucket of cash at the hospital despite telling us for years they were funding it adequately:
If re-elected, ACT Labor will invest $80 million to meet the growing demand for elective surgery.
Our commitment will deliver 5,000 more operations over the next four years. This includes a commitment to provide 30 more Canberrans with cochlear implants.
ACT Labor will also make available $2 million in ‘reward’ funding for hospitals who meet their targets ahead of schedule.
This is on top of the 45,000 operations we already planned to provide making a total of 50,000 operations over the next four years.
