Labor promises a paediatric stream at the Emergency Department

By johnboy - 17 October 2012 1

A curious one here from Team Katy:

If re-elected ACT Labor, in partnership with the Federal Labor Government, will provide $5.8 million towards the establishment of a dedicated service for children in the Canberra Hospital Emergency Department (paediatric stream).

We will kick start this new paediatric response by providing ongoing funding for a Paediatric Clinical Nurse Consultant position and construct a dedicated waiting and triage area for children and their families.

What’s Your opinion?

I heard today there is some controversy about this – apparently Kate Lundy gaffed up by making the money conditional on ACT Labor getting in. If this is so, it is utterly appalling. If we need the money for sick kids, we need the money for sick kids irrespective of who is governing.
