Restore palliative care funding to support people throughout New South Wales with a life-limiting illness

Petitioner: Mr Thomas Westenberg | Member: Carter, Susan | No. of Signatories: 8,241 | Date closes: 03/04/2024 | Status: Open
To the President and Members of the Legislative Council, the petitioners of New South Wales state that the 2022-23 Budget allocated an additional $743.4 million over the five years to 2026-27 to enhance palliative care for people across New South Wales through improved pain and other symptom management options, $150 million of which was cut in the 2023-24 Budget. The petitioners request that the House notes that this cut will mean that some people in New South Wales will not receive palliative care, and calls on the NSW Government to reverse this cut and fully restore the $743.4 million in additional funding for enhanced palliative care services throughout New South Wales.
