Health care not cuts

Posted February 23, 2014 by Together Queensland

Health is the talk of the town at Tully this weekend with the focus on health care for Queensland families including North Queensland communities.

Together Secretary Alex Scott said, “Tully and north Queensland families have a right to consider what it means now hundreds of senior medical officers (doctors) have been meeting across the state and decided to oppose unfair individual contracts.”

Together organiser Deb Pearson said, “North Queensland communities have a right to be concerned, we have to keep our doctors for our health services.

“We care about the future of our public health services here in the north.

“North Queensland doctors are working very hard for local families and communities including right here at Tully.

“We don’t want our doctors working tired, we want our doctors to keep their rights at work.

“Queenslanders have a right to be concerned the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission cannot act as the fair and independent umpire for our doctors.”

More than 4500 health workers’ jobs have been axed in Queensland since mid 2012.

Questions are welcome from 2pm Sunday at Tully State School.
