Far north qld health service gets budget boost for first time in 10 years
The Queensland Government says it will raise $26.8 million by 2020 from taxes collected from some of its poorest and least able communities, as part of a more than 20-year strategy to improve health, reduce unemployment and provide good jobs and services for the state’s poorest and most vulnerable.
Queensland is spending more than $10 billion in health over the next decade, and the health budget is expected to reach over $31 billion by the next parliament.
Public Health Association CEO Dr Mike McAndrew said funding would cover a range of health services in rural, regional and state regions including community and individual care, community medical assistance, patient services and other community services.
He said it would be “happening across the nation호 게임“, but with the exception of Western Australia, Queensland had yet to release figures.
“Queensland is already well established in the field of health-related projects, but we feel that we should make sure we do as well in the next five years as we have in the last,” Dr McAndrew said.
Dr McAndrew said th용인안마 용인출장안마e increase would help in the areas of community health and long-term care.
“It helps support areas of community-wide well-being and well-being of health that we see in areas of rural Queensland,” he said.
“It also makes Queensland the largest beneficiary of a government investment that, in the future, is expected to result in better services for patients and improved health.
“It means that we see much less need for long-term care.”
Queensland has been one of the most heavily taxed regions in Australia and has been hit hardest by the sharp fall in income tax over the past decade, particularly for the highest and best-off earners.
In 2010, average income was about $58,000 for the poorest 25 per cent and the tax rate was 28.25 per cent.
Queensland also has among the highest levels of income inequality in Australia. In 2010, there were 1.43 families of four, for a total family income of more than $88,000.
Dr McAndrew says the proposed changes would be welcomed.
“With such large amounts of tax being raised on the richest people in the country, these measures may very well reduce income inequality and create opportunities for peop이천출장마사지le in this region to increase their own share in the family net worth and create more wealth in their own family,
