The SA Government has decided against all advice to withdraw half the state funding for Keith Hospital. When told that the hospital would be forced to close without this funding, the Government representative replied "I don't care".
He doesn't care if a country town loses its hospital. He doesn't care that this jeapordises the lives of the people in the area and the thousands who travel the dangerous highways around Keith every week.
How is the Minister for Health possibly doing his job, when he is purposefully putting South Australians' lives in danger? When he is purposefully removing health services from what is, at present, a thriving and productive country town? Closing down hospitals is not in the best interest of the public, the economy, the state's health ... or the Government.
Keep our country hospitals alive.
