Have you signed the local Health Petition?

17 Mar 2023

We have reached the 7,000 signatures mark of our petition calling for improvements to local health services in the Narungga electorate and need 3,000 more to reach the 10,000 signatures target that is required to formally trigger Parliamentary action.  


If you are over 18 and haven’t yet signed the petition and are interested in doing so, please call into my office to sign, or call or email and we can provide information about how and where you can provide your signature. The petition specifically seeks better resourcing of our local health services and action to address the GP shortages that so many of us are gravely concerned about and which are threatening the future of regional townships.
