#SaveMedevac - Call MP David Coleman

Call MP David Coleman

(02) 9771 3400

Key messages:

  1. Medevac works because Doctors prioritise medical care for sick people, free of political interference
  2. Before Medevac, at least two people died directly because of this government's medical neglect and delay of doctors requests for transfers for political reasons.
  3. Since Medevac no one has died from medical neglect offshore

Here's how to call:

1. Prepare what you want to say

A clear message that, as a Banks constituent, you want MP David Coleman to advocate within the Liberal party to drop the Medevac repeal legislation before it gets to the Senate. They have already delayed the vote - with enough political pressure, the government will not table the bill.

Your personal story of why you support doctors to be able to provide critical medical care to people seeking asylum and refugees held offshore through the Medevac process, without political interference.
