The Opposition is demanding the State Government release the latest hospital and health figures for Queensland, as the state’s health crisis deepens.
The State Government has repeatedly refused to release any data this year.
It comes after it was revealed health bosses were caught discussing ways to change the way the data was reported to make it look better than it actually is.
Leader of the Opposition David Crisafulli says Queenslanders deserve to know why Queensland has the worst ambulance ramping figures on the country.
“Queenslanders are finding it increasingly harder to trust this government,” Mr Crisafulli said.
“The State Government is yet to find a way to fix the health crisis because it spends so much time trying to fudge the figures.
“Queensland has the worst ambulance ramping in the country and unfortunately you can’t fix what you don’t measure.
“The Government is losing control of health care and Queenslanders deserve to know the truth.
“I want to thank our hard working doctors, nurses, paramedics and allied health professionals who are working around the clock to help keep the health system on the rails.”
Shadow Health Minister Ros Bates said Labor is more interested in fudging the figures than fixing our hospitals.
“As a registered nurse and former hospital administrator, I know how frustrating it is for our frontline staff,” Ms Bates said.
“Ambulance ramping is just one of the many issues affecting our hospitals.
“The embattled Health Minister thought throwing $100 million at the problem would fix it.
“Hiding the true state of our hospitals from Queenslanders wreaks of a cover-up from a third term government more interested with how things look than how they are.”
