Labor to Invest $11.6 Million for Health Facility in Palmerston

with Linda Burney MP, Luke Gosling OAM MP, Senator Malarndirri McCarthy & Labor Candidate for Lingiari Marion Scrymgour

An Albanese Labor Government would provide a permanent home for Danila Dilba Health Service in Palmerston.
 
Labor would invest $11.6 million for a new clinic to deliver medical and wellbeing services to the Palmerston community.
 
Danila Dilba currently provides services to over 15,000 clients. Labor’s investment will help them meet growing demand as the First Nations population in the area they serve grows and ages.
 
One of the lessons of the pandemic is that well-supported local medical services in high-quality facilities are central to keeping our community healthy and safe.
 
Culturally safe primary health care is central to making sure we close the life expectancy gap.
 
Labor is committed to working with First Nations controlled organisations to Close the Gap.
 
Labor introduced the Closing the Gap targets, and Labor will always invest in communities to make sure Australia meets those targets.
 
Labor will work closely with the Danila Dilba and the Northern Territory Government to finalise the best location for them to deliver expanded primary care services in Palmerston.
 
The Morrison-Joyce Government treats communities in the Northern Territory as too far away to bother supporting. They failed to get First Nations communities vaccinated. They failed to provide enough PPE. They failed to provide enough tests to keep services running, let alone keep people safe.
 
It’s time we had a government which would make sure NT communities have the health facilities and services they deserve – an Albanese Labor government.
