In a visit to Goulburn yesterday, NSW Labor leader, Michael Daley announced that a government led by him would increase funding to upgrade the base hospital to $200 million.

 

Mr Daley was accompanied by Shadow health minister, Walt Secord and Labor candidate, Ursula Stephens.

 

Mr Daley says the current government is promising $150 million, but this was $50 million short of what was needed to properly deliver the upgrade.

 

He added that Labor's commitment would cover additional car parking and an MRI machine.

 

Mr Daley pointed to his party's priorities towards investment in health and hospitals and said that Goulburn hospital was one under the most pressure in rural and regional NSW.
