The Liberals are dreaming if they think Victorians are going to forget what they did last time they were in Government - hospitals were run into the ground with funding cuts, services slashed and staff sacked.

Work to deliver a new 24-hr Melton Hospital is already underway – with more than $75 million invested by the Andrews Labor Government to secure land and start planning and early works. The new hospital will be located close to public transport, community sports and recreation facilities and near the Western Freeway – making it easy for residents in the outer west to access to world-class healthcare.

Only the Andrews Labor Government will deliver a world class 24-hour hospital for Melton.

Quotes attributable to Steve McGhie Member for Melton

“Our community has been campaigning for a hospital in our area for decades - and in the three years since I was given the honour of becoming the Member for Melton, I've secured more than $77 million to deliver a business case, purchase land on Ferris Road, and progress early works for a 24-hour Melton Hospital”

“You can't trust the Liberals when it comes to health - when Matthew Guy was a minister, his government cut more than $1 billion from our health system and went to war with our hard-working paramedics.”
