Labor pledges funds for RPH, Liberal pledges for Tafes

WA Labor says it will spend $45.5 million to bring new services to Royal Perth Hospital if it wins the March state election, while the Liberals say they will use about $83 million from the partial sale of Western Power to build three new Tafe facilities.

Opposition leader Mark McGowan said Labor would build a medihotel, an urgent care clinic and a mental health observation area at the CBD hospital, but did not commit to redeveloping the ageing facility.

“Royal Perth Hospital is one of WA’s most trusted hospitals – however under the Liberals it has been neglected,” he said.
