Real Health Care Today is Needed
not a voice
sometime in the future!
Today I read this horrid outcome of a failed health outcome for 3 Aboriginal women who lived in a remote community of Doomadgee in north west Queensland. This community is at least 2,140 klms from Brisbane and it would take about twenty three and a half hours to drive there by car. The term “Systems Failed” seems to indicate a real misunderstanding of the health concern that these three women faced, and that is a real deep concern we at the C4C have is that the various governments are too busy on the charade of concern for our Aboriginal brothers and sisters and not in the delivery of good quality and wholesome services that all in this great land should have for all our people. The delivery of high quality healthcare to the Doomadgee Base Hospital should be a matter of course. Before the government claims that the Voice will assist in improved health care at Doomadgee, we say the only thing stopping quality healthcare delivery in this and other remote communities is the government’s choices of how they spend the taxpayer’s money.
