To the Honourable Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled in Parliament.

We the undersigned request that the government re-open a Medicare Office at Belmont as there is no Medicare office between Charlestown and Lake Haven and there has been a drastic decline in the numbers of general practitioners bulkbilling.

The closure of Belmont Medicare Office by the Howard Government has caused great hardship to many local residents particularly the elderly and those with young children.

Your petitioners therefore respectfully request that the House do everything in their power to ensure that Belmont Medicare Office is reopened as a matter of urgency.

by Ms Hall (from 1,412 citizens)
