Dear Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Minister for Health Greg Hunt
Our community is sick of being sick.
The Liberal National Party's failure to consider Longman while giving out new Medical Resonance Imaging (MRI) licences is hurting our community.
I welcome the Government's latest announcement to provide rebates for the diagnosis of prostate cancer through MRI scans and monitoring. The problem is our area only has one Medicare-funded MRI machine located at the Caboolture Hospital.
As a constituent in the Longman electorate, I deserve clarity about what is happening with MRI licences under this Government, and the truth about why the Government is failing to grant licences to communities that need it.
We are calling on you to make sure that people and families in Longman can access these important life-saving machines by granting additional Medicare-eligible licences, immediately.
