Joanne Ryan, Member for Lalor, has condemned the Coalition Government's refusal to rule out closing any Medicare Locals.
"In what is clearly a broken promise, Minister for Health Peter Dutton has refused to guarantee he won't cut Medicare Locals," Ms Ryan said.
"Given the importance of the South Western Melbourne Medicare Local, this would have a huge impact on the health of our local community."
Ms Ryan said that the jobs of more than 1700 frontline workers employed at Medicare Locals across Australia could be at risk.
"Mr Dutton owes it to these health professionals and their patients to guarantee that our Medicare Locals will not close."
"Locally, SWMML employees 90 people who are dedicated to improving health outcomes for our region."
"If the Coalition Government has plans to close Medicare Locals, they need to be honest with the community."
