Say NO to the Americanisation of our health system.
Say YES to keeping our hospitals public.
The NSW State government is about to privatise 5 more public hospitals .... just like America!
First it was the Northern Beaches, now it’s 5 more public hospitals. Help stop the NSW Government from Americanising our public health system.
Think what losing a truly public hospital will mean for the health staff and local communities.
If we go down the path of privatising public hospitals, it will only lead to the domination of health care by private insurance companies and a rise in social inequity.
Imagine paying the same fearful American costs (US$):
Chest pain*: $69,635
Broken foot**: $45,592
Local and global evidence shows that the more private health insurance is used to fund health care, the more expensive the system becomes, with little improvements to quality of care – just like the US.
