The announcement comes ahead of tomorrow’s 2022-23 Victorian budget.

Premier Daniel Andrews said health would be a centerpiece of the budget.

Mr Andrews said investing in health was important.

“Investing in health, that is what we have always done, and it is what we will do tomorrow,” he said.

“That’s just what we do. We don’t sack nurses, we don’t close hospitals, we don’t cut health funding, we invest in the health services that matter to every family.

“Tomorrow’s comprehensive pandemic repair plan will be all about more nurses, more ambos, better care, and catching up with the care that was not delivered because of COVID.

“That’s what tomorrow’s budget is all about.”

Deputy Premier James Merlino hinted that that the government would go bigger than last year’s $492-million-dollar spend, half-way through a promise to build 100 new schools by 2026.

“We are ahead of schedule, more investment in schools and there will be more investment in school upgrades,” Mr Merlino said.

He was today at Wantirna College, in Melbourne’s east, to announce the school would be receiving $11 million in tomorrow’s budget.

“I want to thank the Coalition for their election commitment but this money is in the budget, it’s in black and white and it’s just what we needed,” Wantirna College Principal Kevin Murphy said.
