Australia is facing a healthcare emergency. The Abbott Government cuts to health have begun and our entire community will feel the effect.
The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation, Australia’s largest health union, has launched our campaign against these lies, cuts and broken promises, to stop these changes before they have the chance to devastate the health of Australians.
Nurses and midwives are not prepared to stand by and watch Australia’s successful, sustainable system of universal healthcare be destroyed and we are joining with the community and calling on the Senate to reject these lies, cuts and broken promises.
Nurses and midwives believe that healthcare should be available to those who need it, not just those who can pay for it. We are not prepared to stand by and watch the health of Australians be put at risk, especially the most vulnerable in our communities, such as the elderly, young families already struggling to make ends meet, people in regional and rural areas and low income earners.
Stand with us. Take the pledge against these lies, cuts and broken promises. Share your story about how these lies, cuts and broken promises will affect you, your family and your community on Facebook and twitter using #healthcareemergency.
When you share your story using #healthcareemergency, they will be automatically directed to key Ministers, MP’s or Senators so they know you are taking a stand against these lies, cuts or broken promises.
Urge the Senate to reject these budget broken promises.
