Ms VAMVAKINOU (Calwell) (15:59): I am delighted to report to the chamber that the Broadmeadows superclinic is now officially up and running in my electorate. I had the great pleasure of opening the superclinic on Monday, 16 February. I want to boast—I think that is the word I am looking for—about this state-of-the-art facility that is now in my electorate and servicing the health needs of the people of Broadmeadows. The Hume GP Super Clinic, as it is known, is the result of a $7 million contribution by the previous federal Labor government. I was very pleased to officiate at this one-stop medical shop, which will have lots of GPs. In particular, it will have an after-hours GP service for my constituents with pathologists, a pharmacy, physiotherapists, podiatrists and occupational therapists. It has been almost three decades in which the people of Broadmeadows have fought long and hard to have, if not a hospital, certainly a significant medical infrastructure such as the Hume GP Super Clinic. So it is my great pleasure and privilege to thank the former CEO, Veronica Jamison, and the chairman of the board, Dr John Hodgson, for their incredible support and dedication and the hard work that went into ensuring that this infrastructure has become a reality in the suburb of Broadmeadows.
