Wimmera Cancer Centre - Statement
Victorian Parliament - 10 May 2017 - Ms KEALY - In May 2016 the Minister for Health promised local cancer patients, ‘If you don’t get there, we will. We’re going to build this. This project is not going to stop if the community fundraising falls short’. Some of these cancer patients are no longer with us today. It is an absolute disgrace that the minster has broken her promise. Without additional funding the Wimmera cancer centre will be significantly cut back, meaning no dialysis services and no palliative care. Our local people are, rightly, devastated. We will not let the Andrews Labor government get away with this disgraceful deceit.
