Tragic milestone for ramping under Labor

South Australia has reached a tragic new milestone in its healthcare crisis, and today, Shadow Minister for Health, Ashton Hurn and I revealed the data. Despite Peter Malinauskas winning an election on the number one commitment that he would ‘fix ramping’, total ramping hours under Labor have now surpassed the former government’s four-year total in less than two years.

On Labor’s watch, ramping hours have soared beyond anything experienced under the former Liberal Government. I don’t recall any fine print on Labor’s election posters stating that part of their plan to ‘fix ramping’ was that it would get so much worse – and neither do South Australians.

Peter Malinauskas needs stop just being a Premier for the good times, stop with the bread and circuses distractions, and get his priorities in order and focus on fixing our health system.
