We live in a fast-growing area with a lot of children: Bentley Hospital is our main health facility, but it’s under threat from the Barnett Government.

Both surgical and maternity services face possible cuts.

Perhaps worse is the uncertainty: both Premier Barnett and his Health Minister have failed to set out a clear plan for Bentley Hospital’s future.

The community needs an acknowledgement that Bentley Hospital is a key local service and a commitment not just to maintaining services but to upgrading old facilities and expanding to meet population growth.
