A Progressive Health System
The Progress Party accepts the need for a new hospital. The pandemic has highlighted the issues the current hospital infrastructure has had to cope with and the services it provides within. We will commit to ensuring that the new hospital is delivered in both an acceptable timeframe and budget.
For Islanders to enjoy the best possible mental and physical health throughout their lives, from cradle to grave, we will also advocate a greater focus on a preventative health care model that provides timely access to quality health care. We will also advocate for more resources to be provided to mental health care.
We will promote and deliver policies that support and encourage Islanders to stay healthy and active as part of living happy lives.
