Myall Lakes member and Nationals candidate in the upcoming State election, Stephen Bromhead says he looks forward to “making a real announcement” regarding hospital funding.
He was responding to Labor’s announcement on February 8 that it would invest an additional $60 million to deliver the full $100 million upgrade at Manning Hospital, should it win government.
“Michael Daley should’ve come to the electorate with the cheque book, not his change purse,” Mr Bromhead said.
"Operational funding to Manning Hospital under Labor in their last year of government was $59.5 million in the 2018/19 financial year funding is $97 million," he said.
NSW Opposition leader Michael Daley and Shadow NSW Health Minister Walt Secord, joined Labor candidate for Myall Lakes David Keegan for the announcement at Manning Hospital on Friday.
Last June NSW Premier Gladys Berejikilian visited Manning Hospital to announce an additional $20 million had been allocated by the NSW Government for stage one of the redevelopment of Manning Hospital.
The funding was to complete the expanded Medical Imaging Department, new CT, ultrasound and fluoroscopy equipment and improvements to patient waiting areas.
The State election will be held on Saturday, March 23.
