$8.5 million plan to reduce surgery waiting lists in Tasmania

Tasmania's Health Minister Lara Giddings has launched a $8.5 million plan to reduce the elective surgery waiting list by 1,500 operations. The plan is likely to activate by next year.

Ms Giddings says a website and phone hotline will provide better information for patients, who'll be given the option of going to a different hospital to be attended too more quickly.

However, the Liberal opposition has labelled it too little, too late.The Liberal's Brett Whiteley says the government is simply adding a new layer of bureaucracy.
