ORGAN TO JOIN BULLI HOSPITAL EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT DISCUSSIONS TODAY

Cunningham MP Michael Organ will join Illawarra Greens Lord Mayoral candidate Jill Merrin and concerned northern suburbs residents today to discuss strategies for ensuring that emergency services at Bulli Hospital are retained.

“Both the State and Federal governments have allowed the public health system to deteriorate”, Mr. Organ said.

“Instead of bleeding the local health system dry we need governments to provide more resources to upgrade Bulli Hospital and its emergency department”.

“I will be meeting Illawarra Area Health Service CEO Dr. Liz Gale to discuss the issue on 5 April and today’s meeting will give me valuable background for that discussion”, Mr. Organ said.

Mr. Organ will meet Ms. Merrin and northern suburbs residents in front of Bulli Hospital at 12:00 noon today, Friday 26 March 2004.
