COVID-19 has put a halt to the final operational details with the Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH) and ComLink regarding this initiative, and it is unknown at this stage when Regional Health will be able to revisit this with me. I have requested funding from Minister Miles to run the pilot, which would enable myself and our frontline organisations to work with ComLink to identify and transport patients that are not able to meet the cost or are not physically able to travel to the hospital. I am extremely frustrated by the length of this process and should we be unsuccessful in securing that funding, I will be funding a pilot myself.
