Electors of the division of Hervey Bay draws to the attention of the House that the Hervey Bay area urgently needs local renal and urological services that include diagnostic, management and treatment for patients in order to improve patient clinical outcomes. Patients with mild to severe urological and renal diseases who experience poor clinical outcomes face significant barriers in accessing clinical care pathways due to the tyranny of distance and lack of local specialist services.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to consider and accurately evaluate the demographic and population numbers of the Hervey Bay area and provide local renal and urological specialist services as a matter of urgency.
