CAIRNS ALP candidate Rob Pyne has called on the Newman Government to provide charter flights home for Cape York residents in the wake of the Skytrans closure to reduce Cairns Hospital “bed block”.

Mr Pyne said a number of people from Cape York receiving treatment at the hospital had become trapped in the city and were either taking up valuable hospital beds or living homeless until they could be flown back home.
