Labor Govt’s Breach Of Trust Over Hospital Data Lies
Victor P Taffa
Today Chief Minister Katy Gallagher and ACT Labor admitted to an unprecedented breach of trust, revealing that the community has been fed lies over hospital performance for at least the last two years. The revelations will seriously undermine the community’s ability to trust the Gallagher Labor Government.
ACT Opposition Leader Zed Seselja said today that this completely erodes Katy Gallagher’s public claims of leading an open and transparent government, and that it is unacceptable and untenable for the government to effectively investigate itself over this serious matter.
“The last time we saw an ‘independent’ investigation into the health system the government appointed their own investigator and covered up the findings. This government’s track record of vindicating itself must end.” Mr. Seselja said.
“Katy Gallagher has absolutely no credibility when it comes to being honest with Canberrans on the health system, and we won’t accept her own appointment of an investigator on this very serious issue.”
ACT Shadow Health Minister Jeremy Hanson said Chief Minister Katy Gallagher’s dishonesty with Canberrans over the health system must end.
“Katy Gallagher was dishonest with Canberrans about elective surgery waiting times dishonest with Canberrans about bullying in obstetrics at Canberra hospital, and now we see the dishonest manipulation of hospital data at the heart of her Department.” Mr. Hanson said.
“It is blatantly clear that Katy Gallagher hasn’t been upfront with Canberrans about the health system and only a truly independent investigation will give Canberrans the full story which they deserve.” Mr. Hanson said.
