As compared to previous years, Queensland hospitals will get a lower funding help this year. Due to this, they are expecting a deficiency of millions of dollars this financial year.
According to sources, the state government this year has decided to give extra $400 million to hospital and health board funds across the state, but as highlighted by Health Minister Lawrence Springborg, this amount is lesser than previous years. He told ABC radio on Friday morning: "Over the last few years the budget has generally gone up by 10.5 per cent yet productivity across our hospitals has only increased by 4%".
It clearly seems that Queensland is facing a difficult situation this time and as compared to other states, the hospitals here are running at a quite lower efficiency rate.
Reported by the Courier-Mail, the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital which is known as the states biggest hospital, is facing a reduced budget by $50 million, whereas the metro north district is experiencing an $80 million cut.
A spokesman for Mr. Springborg told AAP that though the actual has not yet been disclosed, but the September 11 state budget in regard to hospital funds has been already shared with the metro north district board.
