I’ve been so proud to represent you as your local Federal MP as we’ve worked together through the challenges of the last year or so. We’ve emerged stronger and more resilient out the other side of the peak of the pandemic, with local business confidence at its highest in 14 years and hundreds of jobs on offer.

The most recent budget is going to go a long way to see that growth and recovery continue with the support of more tax cuts, lower insurance premiums and huge investments in disaster recovery and resilience.

We’re also supporting Defence members, veterans and their families with a Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicides, and nearly half a billion dollars for the Department of Veterans Affairs to help them look after our people better.

As your Federal Member I am always here to help. If there’s ever anything I can do, please don’t hesitate to get in touch on the phone, on Facebook or by email.

While you’re here, please take a minute to have your say, and let me know what’s important to you and your family.

Well done deserved people in need. THANK YOU For your dedication to TOWNSVILLE AND COMMUNITY 'S.👏👏👏👍👍👍🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺

Some health outcomes for indigenous people are less than desirable. Places like this make it easier for those in remote areas needing treatment. Good work.

Whereabouts is this Phil It looks great !! More good work from you !!

Shouldn’t we be doing this for all Australians?

Nice work Phill

Amazing, congratulations Dushy and the entire team

This is all off the back / shirt tail of Ernest Hoolihan, who had the Education to be able to seek out and Apply for Grants for the Indigenous people and the Torress Strait Island people. Without him there would be No Yumba Meta , CEO. The Credit goes to Ernest Michael Hoolihan . Educated at Townsville Grammer. Now Dr. Of Letters. And the Committee members who first formed Yumba Meta. Lest we Forget. .

What a great thing to have happen for aboriginals an Torres Strait islanders from the west an the top end an the cities an palm islanders

Fantastic! I can’t believe how I have you given to this region.

Although 'everyone' is entitled to a good standard of health care, there is in my humble opinion, an element of 'reverse racism' in establishments like this. As long as the intent is good and properly applied though, that is all that really matters.

Congratulations Yumba Meta!!!!

Good on you Philip doing a great job

Well done 👍🇦🇺

Thank you Yumba Meta and Phillip Thompson OAM MP - Fighting For Townsville for your foresight in the needs of our community it doesn’t take months for this to happen but years and that’s the way things happen 💚🌸

I've watched this build progress whilst driving past. Nice to know how it's turned out. Well done.

Fantastic work by Yumba Meta! Thanks for securing the funding, Phillip Thompson OAM MP - Fighting For Townsville. A service like this has been desperately needed.

Awesome, Phillip Thompson OAM MP - Fighting For Townsville any chance you can get Annastacia Palaszczuk MP to approve people under 50 to get AZ

Well done

Hayley Pennycuick

Well done

As the hospital is expanding and we are able to offer more medical treatment for outside communities, I hope more affordable facilities like this become available for all. So important for people to have that family support.

OMG everyone should harden the fcuk up brus!! This is a life changing positive for our indigenous people and here you all are crying why not us, what can't we stay there, why is it only for black people... Uhh hellooo dipshits yous (white people) have Ronald McDonald house, the town which you came from should be paying for you people accommodation (sarcastically laughing) hahaha. Brus our people are more comfortable around our own, without white people breathing down our necks being judgmental and clutching ya manbag or handbags when you see a black fulla. Seriously do yous think that this is a great outcome from the FIRST NATION PEOPLE or what? Why so negative?? IT WAS BUILT FOR US GET OVER IT😎 🖤💛❤️💚🤍💙 Thanks to the people who had an input in this project and made it all happen. Thank you 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

Congratulations 👏🏼 well done Phil, keep up the awesome work you do in NQ
