How many surgeries, Ms White?


The so-called health policy announced today by Ms White has one glaring omission – it fails to detail how many additional elective surgeries a Labor-Green minority government would achieve.

Ms White announced more staff (remember, Labor sacked 280 nurses the last time they were in office) and a pie-in-the-sky plan to magically build a whole new hospital in just two years (remember, in 10 years they didn’t lay a brick at the new Royal), but no detail about how many patients will be treated.

So please do tell, exactly how many elective surgeries does your so-called policy deliver, Ms White?

Or is this simply a bad episode of Yes Minister – a new hospital and more staff, but without any patients?
