“We’ve never been a country that’s ripped off generations to pay for today. And under my government, we never will.” — If this is the case, why in the Prime Ministers own electorate, is the campus of his communities Teaching/Referral hospital being sold to pay for the hospital redevelopment. The money generated would pay for the operating costs of a major hospital for only a few months. The proposal would sell land that is within 50 m of St Leonards’s railway station. It is one of our community’s most valuable health assets and should not be sold. Its proximity to public transport ensures that the health care services provided by the campus are available to members of the community throughout the state. Once this land is sold it is lost forever.
