Statement from LNP Shadow Minister John-Paul Langbroek

LNP Shadow Health Minister John-Paul Langbroek said claims from Labor Health Minister Cameron Dick that Queensland’s health funding had fallen under the Federal Budget are completely false.

"There is no $10 billion cut to Queensland Hospital funding," Mr Langbroek said.


"This is an unfunded promise by Commonwealth Labor and Cameron Dick should take this matter up with Federal Labor Leader Bill Shorten.


"The Turnbull Government is providing an extra $1.292 million to Queensland hospitals over the next four years, a substantial 23.9 per cent increase in funding.


"This means more hospitals, more doctors and more services for Queenslanders.


"This new funding is part of a new hospitals agreement signed and agreed to by the Queensland Government in 2016.


"The Commonwealth has committed to substantially increasing hospitals funding over five years and the Queensland Government needs to commit to do the same in its budget.


"The Queensland Government is responsible for the allocation of funding and management of public hospitals.


"Minister Dick knows this and signed off on a new hospital agreement in November 2016.


"The Minister should focus on utilising record Commonwealth hospital funding to deliver better health outcomes for Queenslanders, rather than shedding crocodile tears."
