Drug and alcohol abuse is one of the biggest issues facing Western Australia. While the abuse is the choice of the individual, the impacts on the rest of the community can be significant so it is important that drug and alcohol abuse is minimised through education, policing, and having sufficient work opportunities to keep people active and engaged in work, rather than taking drugs or heavy drinking.
Regarding COVID-19 and other communicable diseases, the Western Australia Party supports a strong border and quarantining measures, to protect our people and to reduce the load on our public hospital system.
The Western Australia Party supports a public hospital system of good standards and adequately resourced, to protect the community should they be injured or have health issues. As such we believe that improvements to FIX hospital ramping and waiting times must be made and will prioritise a review of current policy on the matter.
