Labor pledges funding for palliative care centre
The Labor Party has pledged support for a palliative centre on the Peninsula in an announcement at the Woy Woy waterfront on February 15.
The $20 million palliative care hospice was announced by NSW Shadow Health Minister Mr Walt Secord and Federal Labor Shadow Health Minister Ms Catherine King.
A Federal Labor government would fund the building of the centre and a State Labor government would fund its maintenance and staffing.
Ms King said Federal Labor would invest $20 million to set up a 20-bed standalone palliative care unit at Woy Woy Hospital.
Mr Secord said a State Labor Government would provide ongoing staff.
Members of the Elsie's Retreat Committee and Wyoming East Gosford Centennial Lions Club couldn't hold back the tears when the $20 million palliative care hospice was announced.
