While the Tasmanian Liberal Government is working hard to safely reopen the Mersey ED to a 24/7 service, Rebecca White and Labor are continuing their constant politicking at every opportunity.
It’s newest member is on the record saying the hospital “exists due to political pork barrelling and parochialism. Now – we all pay for it” – Bastian Seidel*.
Dr Seidel’s tweet provides a link to an article from Martyn Goddard, which says:
The question needs to be answered - does Dr Seidel stand by his comment, and does Rebecca White support it?
We are getting on with our plan to reopen the Mersey ED 24/7 by providing more resources, implementing immediate staffing solutions and bolstering our recruitment efforts.
Our fantastic nurses and healthcare workers do an outstanding job and we need to make sure safety remains our absolute number one priority.
