Residents, nurses join in Freo Hospital ED protest

This morning Simone was joined by Freo residents, nurses, hospital workers, Shadow Health Minister Roger Cook and Federal Member for Fremantle, Melissa Parke MP, to protest the closing of Fremantle Hospital’s Emergency Department.

“This short-sighted decision by the Barnett Government that will have a negative impact on the most vulnerable in our community,” she said.

“At the State election two years ago it was only WA Labor that committed to keeping the Emergency Department open, and I will fight to have some kind of emergency capacity reinstated at our hospital.”
