Health concerns raised

Apetition calling for additional doctors at Robe closed last week.

Robe resident Richie White and other concerned community members developed the document to try rectify the General Practitioner shortage in Robe.

The document will be tabled in the House of Assembly and calls on the State Government to addresses the issue of the shortage of doctors in the seaside community.

The petitioners want action to ensure the community paramedic position is made permanent to guarantee on-going and urgent medical needs are met.

It is thought the Robe population expands to 20,000 over summer and so the petitioners want the State Government to acknowledge this and increase the medical and community paramedic services at Robe.

The petitioners want the State Government to also acknowledge the current medical services are insufficient to meet the needs of the growing population of Robe.
