Thank you Mr Speaker.
My question is to the Premier in his capacity as Minister for Health.
Premier, it’s been over two months since Calvary Hobart closed its accident and emergency department on weekends.
This has put the public health system, already stretched to breaking point, under more pressure as the Royal Hobart Hospital must absorb those weekend admissions.
Premier, this is a highly undesirable situation.
What discussions have you had with Calvary and what is your plan to return their emergency department to full operations so that Tasmanians can access emergency health services when they need them?
