Shellharbour Hospital – the next stage of the campaign


As we reported on 10 November 2017 we won the fight to keep Shellharbour Hospital public.

But our members in Shellharbour want to make sure that the hospital and the redevelopment is properly funded.

They organised a meeting with Gareth Ward, Member for Kiama and Parliamentary Secretary for the Illawarra and South Coast on 17 November to discuss their concerns and then on 15 December they sent Mr Ward a letter setting out the case for more funding.

We attach a copy of the letter from our members and the official responses from Gareth Ward and Jonathan O’Dea MP (Parliamentary Secretary to the Premier and Treasurer). Both referred the matter to the Minister Brad Hazard.

Our members have not had a response or acknowledgement from Brad Hazard’s office.

ASMOF will be meeting with our Shellharbour members on 31 January, to discuss the next stage of the campaign.
