Title
Victorian Bush Nursing Centres
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council the lack of funding and certainty provided to the 14 bush nursing centres across Victoria by the Andrews Labor Government. Bush nursing centres provide significant contributions and support to remote Victorian communities. In particular, the Buchan, Cann Valley, Dargo, Gelantipy, Swifts Creek and Walwa bush nursing centres played an enormous role in the recent devastating bushfires including acting as a relief centre, providing hundreds of meals for firefighters, undertaking welfare checks and provision of primary and emergency care.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to recognise the increase in operational costs and demands that Victoria’s bush nursing centres constantly face and to immediately and properly resource bush nursing centres.
