2018 State Election: Narungga candidates’ views about health

­The YP Country Times continues its series asking local election candidates for their thoughts about key topics affecting the region. This week’s focus is on health. The state election will be held on Saturday, March 17.

Rebecca Hewett  Australian Conservatives
AUSTRALIAN Conservatives members have not made a secret of the fact we are very concerned about the lack of health, mental health and allied health services across Narungga.
Labor has transformed health right out of country areas and we have seen hospital infrastructure and basic maintenance needs ignored. As a result, vital surgical space, medical staff and other allied health services have come under threat.

Doug Milera Labor
THE State Labor government recently announced $140million cash injection for country hospitals and aged-care facilities to upgrade infrastructure.
This will ensure high-quality services can continue to be provided to rural and regional communities.

Sam Davies SA-Best
AT the core of SA-BEST’s health policy is a focus on preventative measures, delivering significant health cost savings.
Our support for increasing the legal age for buying tobacco products from 18 to 21 has evidence-based research showing it results in a dramatic fall in young people taking up smoking, leading to a reduction in costs for smoking-related illnesses. In 2016, Australia lost 2866 people to suicide, many more than our road toll.

Fraser Ellis Liberal
BY far the most concerning issue as I doorknock and meet with community groups across Narungga is our health services, or lack thereof.
Alarmingly, retirees long intending to spend their last years in our beautiful patch of the world are now considering moving back to Adelaide where services are more assured.

Jason Swales  Greens
ALL South Australians are entitled to the best healthcare possible, regardless of where they live or how much they earn.
The Greens’ policy on healthcare promotes prevention is better, as well as cheaper, rather than cure. Keeping people of all ages healthy, active and out of hospital is the key to stemming the rapidly-rising costs of healthcare.
