WESTERN Sydney Local Health District has denied Opposition claims the state government has slashed its budget.
But Mt Druitt MP Richard Amery stands by his claims, as the NSW Auditor-General's report revealed the budget in the local health district, which includes Mt Druitt, was cut by $19.9 million this year.
Mr Amery believes it's part of plans to cut $3 billion from the public health system.
"We will see longer waiting times, delays to surgery, unclean wards and patients left unattended for hours because of the Premier's cuts," he said.
Finance executive Tony Hickmott said the district received a 4.2 per cent increase in its initial expenses budget, bringing it to $1.38 billion.
"We are working on improving efficiency and directing more funds to frontline services," Mr Hickmott said.
"There are no plans to cut services and we will ensure the right solutions for our services and our patients."
Health Minister Jillian Skinner's office also denied the claims.
"The NSW Health budget has gone up this year, with a 5.4 per cent increase in funds from Treasury announced in June," a spokesman said.
"Some people have claimed that $3 billion is being 'cut' out of the NSW health system.
"This is not true."
Mr Amery isn't backing down from his claims.
"These figures are not made up, they're in published reports," he said.
