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