Queensland Premier: Don't take the axe to the Royal Children's Hospital

    1. Petition by

      Queenslanders Uniting

The Government's Axe has now fallen on the Royal Children's Hospital.

99 nurses, administrators, and health professionals from the Royal Children's Hospital are going to loose their jobs - and that means that sick kids are going to suffer.

When Queenslanders said they wouldn't stand for cuts to the Breastscreen service, the government backed down - we need to tell them that we won't stand for cuts to the Royal Children's Hospital either.

We cant just stand by and allow the government to take 99 staff away from caring for our kids when they are sick.

Sign the Petition now, and share it as widely as we can - join the thousands of Queenslanders who are saying no to these callous cuts.

 

To:
Campbell Newman, Queensland Premier
I believe that looking after sick kids should be a priority for any government.

Your decision to slash the health budget means that there will be 99 less staff looking after Queensland kids.

I ask that you consider the impact your callous cuts are having on our most vulnerable, and consider the real cost of those cuts to Queensland families.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Isn't it better to be pro-active in preventing disease than trying to treat it after the fact.

      The Royal Children's Hospital is a very important place. Why would you destroy a place that gives sick children hope. If you take RCH you may as well be taking away our future.

      I support this because I believe that citizens health and welfare is more important than early returns to a god damned surplus.
