The recent article about former city councillor Lorrie Williams being forced to wait hours for an ambulance after suffering a stroke is very disturbing indeed.
And it is just another example of why we absolutely need to to allow the private sector to be involved in our health-care system!
It is crystal clear that we no longer have enough nurses, doctors, paramedics and other health-care professionals to adequately serve the needs of our ever burgeoning population. Keeping the private sector out of our health-care system based on a flawed socialist ideology is hurting real live human beings, who deserve so much better from their government.
It is long past time for a massive political shake-up in Victoria. Real people are suffering, right now!
