Tesch to continue to campaign for palliative care
Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch has promised to continue to campaign for palliative care.
Federal Labor promised $20 million for a standalone palliative care unit in Woy Woy if elected at the recent election.
Ms Tesch said the promise was met with tremendous support from the local community.
"I'm calling on re-elected Member for Robertson Ms Lucy Wicks to secure the same funding for this vital project," Ms Tesch said.
"I'm also calling on State Member for Terrigal Mr Adam Crouch and the NSW Government to provide funding and staffing commitments for the centre."
Ms Tesch has spoken in Parliament about the need for palliative care on the Central Coast highlighting the work of Elsie's Retreat.
Ms Tesch is continuing to collect signatures in support of the project at her office in Woy Woy.
"As the population of the Central Coast continues to grow and age, so does our need for this project.
"I promise to continue working closely with Elsie's Retreat and the Lions Club of Wyoming- East Gosford to keep the flame of this campaign burning bright."
