URGENT CARE CLINICS
995. Hon MARTIN ALDRIDGE to the parliamentary secretary
representing the Minister for Health:
I refer to the WA Labor election
commitment to establish 11 urgent care clinics in Western Australia.
(1) Can the
minister guarantee, consistent with the election commitment, that all patients
attending an urgent care clinic will be bulk billed?
(2) If not, why has the government
deviated from its election commitment?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
(1) Patients will have an option to
attend a general practitioner urgent care clinic that bulk bills.
(2) Not applicable.
