Queensland’s Health Minister has called on the federal government to help free up hospital beds, as the state’s leading medical association warns the public heath system is at “crisis point”.
Health Minister Yvette D’Ath said almost 600 hospital beds could be freed up across the state “if the Commonwealth was to step in today”, by providing more aged care and disability packages.
Ms D’Ath’s comments came after the Australian Medical Association Queensland (AMAQ) warned the state’s public hospitals were struggling to cope with clogged emergency departments, too few beds, and burnt-out staff.ABC News (Australia) YouTube Channel
