The Federal Labor Candidate for Gilmore says a Shorten Labor Government would invest $2.8 Billion back into Hospitals.

The pledge comes as Fiona Phillips highlights a funding cut from the Federal Government of $715 Million saying it's having a devastating impact in the Shoalhaven.

Ms Phillips says staffing is one of the biggest issues at Shoalhaven Hospital.
