Third anniversary of Daniel Andrews scrapping Peter Mac beds

Tuesday, April 03, 2018

Today marks the third anniversary of Daniel Andrews’ announcement to scrap 42 hospital beds from the new Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre which would have provided treatment to thousands of cancer patients.

It might have been exactly three years ago but Victorians won’t forget Daniel Andrews putting politics and his own ideology ahead of better health outcomes for Victorian cancer patients.

Since that decision was made, an estimated 13,000 people with cancer have missed out on treatment at what would have been “Peter Mac Private”. 

Daniel Andrews’ decision has cost Victorian taxpayers $100 million and led to the 13th Floor of the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) being vacant for over 18 months. 

More recently, a further 32 cancer beds have been cut from the VCCC, meaning more patients will miss out on world class cancer care.  

For over three years Daniel Andrews has put politics ahead of people whilst taking every opportunity to moralise.
