King calls on Capricornia MP to make stand on Medicare Local
SHADOW Health minister Catherine King today called on the Member for Capricornia to stand up for the region's Medicare Local service.
Ms King, on a visit to Rockhampton, said the Abbott Government had announced its intention to replace Medicare Locals with Primary Health Networks from July, 2015.
She said CQ Medicare Local had done a fantastic job servicing the health needs of the region and she called on Ms Landry to stand up for the region and guarantee it wouldn't lose out.
