The Queensland government recently delivered a state budget that provided record spending for health in Queensland. However, from 2017 drastic federal government budget cuts will begin to take effect.
Every year more Queenslanders need more health services and these services are more expensive to provide. However the federal government has cut the amount of health funding previously committed to Queensland by $11.89 billion over the next ten years. This means that, from 2017, the Queensland government will get more money each year than the year before, but less money than it needs to provide the same level of services.
