13HEALTH forgotten by Palaszczuk Labor Government

Queensland Health's 13HEALTH website has been forgotten by the do-nothing Labor Government, with the website last updated almost three years ago.

LNP Shadow Minister for Health John-Paul Langbroek said 13HEALTH was an important gateway for people seeking medical assistance.


"13HEALTH is a first port of call for many sick Queenslanders and it is extremely concerning that the website hasn't been updated since December 1, 2014," Mr Langbroek said.


"It’s prime proof of a do-nothing Labor Government that would rather talk up the flu season than offer real solutions to the health system.


"So much for advancing Queensland when the key website promoting health advice to keep people out of emergency departments hasn't been updated for almost three years.


"Queenslanders don't need a failed Health Minister who has overseen the return of ambulance ramping to know it's a bad flu season.


"We need solutions to our clogged emergency departments to ensure adequate through-care, not more stating of the obvious.


"The last time Cameron Dick announced a media campaign it was to say 'assaults on ambulance officers are not on', but since then we have seen more assaults not fewer.


"It's time the Minister stopped talking and started doing something to tackle Queensland's struggling emergency health system.


"In Government, the LNP significantly reduced ramping by better coordination of ambulance and emergency departments and better oversight of the system."
