$158k daily saving by rural Qld ML

An analysis of the Central Queensland Medicare Local (CQML) carried out by the Central Queensland University also found that the organisation injected $8.5 million into the local economy as well as directly and indirectly creating 118 new jobs in the 12 months following its launch in July 2012.

CQML CEO Jean -McRuvie said there had also been a significant drop in hospital admissions during the same period, which she believed was at least in part attributable to additional services provided throughout the region.
