Save the Repat: the fight continues

19 June 2015

Over 60,000 people have signed a petition, expressing their desire to save the Repat Hospital from closure. I am determined to continue this fight and to stop the state Labor Government’s short-sighted decision.

Over 60,000 people have signed a petition, expressing their desire to save the Repat Hospital from closure. I am determined to continue this fight and to stop the state Labor Government’s short-sighted decision.

This hospital is viewed with affection by thousands in our community who have first-hand experience of how it has cared for loved ones, supported veterans, got seniors back on their feet, provided palliative care for people in the twilight of their lives, and simply provided a quality healthcare service to those who needed it.

The Liberal Party recently established the Save the Repat Steering Committee and this is another valuable plank in the strategy to prevent the hospital’s closure. This committee brings together veterans, community leaders and medical professionals, and it is my hope that they will be able to exert further pressure on the government and stop this reckless move.

I encourage you to join the fight by downloading a copy of the Save the Repat Petition, getting your neighbours, friends and family to sign it and then forwarding it to my office at Reply Paid 84660, PO Box 121, Brighton, SA, 5048.

The more voices we can add to this fight, the better.
