Is the Health Minister being kept in the dark?

  • Premier’s department sent in to address the health crisis       
  • Health Minister appears unaware of what’s going on 
  • Another personal attack in response to legitimate questions       

Michael Ferguson’s personal attacks are becoming increasingly desperate and pathetic.

“The Health Minister appears completely unaware that senior bureaucrats from the Premier’s own department have been charged with fixing the mess in the Tasmanian Health Service,” Labor Leader Rebecca White said.

“It would be extraordinary if this was happening behind the Minister’s back.

“With senior clinicians expressing no confidence in the leadership team of the THS, Labor understands Secretary of the Department of Premier and Cabinet has been forced to intervene.

“The question is – what recommendations have been made and will they be acted upon before the election?”
