HANSARD NSW PARLIAMENT 1 MAY 2013: QUESTION TIME
" ST GEORGE HOSPITAL ... CANCER SURGERY
Ms CHERIE BURTON: In view of the life-threatening nature of surgery delays, will she give a guarantee today that all patients currently waiting for a peritonectomy will have their surgery within clinically recommended time frames?
Mrs JILLIAN SKINNER: As I indicated in my previous answer, we are working on a solution that I believe will provide an answer not only for public patients but also for private patients and those from interstate, which will mean they will continue to have access to this fantastic service. St George Hospital has done a wonderful job in providing this service, but we are looking for an alternative because of the huge demand."
