Super clinic bailout: Govt coughs up $880,000

Local media reported that the clinic, in the election bellwether seat of Eden-Monaro, received a top-up payment of $880,000, in addition to its original $5.5 million, and that instead of opening in December this year as scheduled, the building was now expected to be finished as late as September next year.

Shadow parliamentary secretary for primary healthcare Dr Andrew Southcott said the bailout put the Snowy River super clinic among the ranks of super clinics at Redcliffe, Mt Isa and Wallan, which he said had required a total of $14.08
