Posted November 07, 2018 09:03:56The Catholic Church is launching its official hospital wait list for the rest of the year, with a new map highlighting what’s available.
The list of hospitals for the coming week is due to be released on Tuesday.
It will highlight all emergency departments, mental health and trauma centres, as well as community and hospital services.
The Catholic Health Alliance has a list of 20,000 beds available, and says they will be distributed as needed.
It’s a move the Catholic Church says is to keep up with demand.
“We have to do more than just fill up our beds,” Archbishop of Brisbane Cardinal George Pell said.
“It’s important that we give our people the help they need and that we get back to work.”
This is the time to do that and we have to get people back to school.
“The Church also released a list for its hospitals, with hospitals on the top and the bottom of the list depending on the size of the hospital.”
What we’re really seeing is a change in the system of the health system and we want to do everything we can to meet that demand,” Cardinal Pell said on ABC Radio National.
Cardinal Pell said there were still “huge gaps” in the health service, which has to be addressed.”
The problem we’re facing is that we have a system that’s not working,” he said.
Cardinals and their staff are still struggling to deal with the consequences of a global economic downturn, and are increasingly being forced to travel abroad for work.
Cardine said the Government should look at ways to address the “humanitarian crisis” by investing in more doctors, nurses and other health workers.”
They’ve got their own lives to take care of, they’ve got a family to take the care of and they’ve been put into a situation that they have to work, they have their own responsibilities to do, so it’s just not acceptable.””
Look at the people that we’ve got here.
They’ve got their own lives to take care of, they’ve got a family to take the care of and they’ve been put into a situation that they have to work, they have their own responsibilities to do, so it’s just not acceptable.”
I think the more we can invest in our hospitals, in the mental health services, in our health services and in the other services we have here in the community, the better the situation is.
