Legistrative Council E-Petitions

E-petition Number
170
Title
Health services in Alpine Shire and surrounds
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council the need to improve the quality of medical and emergency care available within Alpine Shire and surrounds, with one on-call doctor servicing Bright, Mount Beauty and Myrtleford Hospital. Residents of these areas are not receiving emergency support within adequate times and are being put in dangerous situations during times of medical urgency. First Responders such as Community Emergency Response Teams or Patient Transport Services need to operate outside the hours of 9.00 am to 5.00 pm and emergencies are not being treated as an emergency.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Minister of Health, the Hon Jenny Mikakos MLC, to investigate the current state of health services in Alpine Shire and its surrounding areas and make the necessary changes required to ensure that adequate and quality health services can be provided.
