Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Jane McNamara

Total Signatures - 433

Sponsoring Member: Mark McArdle MP

Posting Date: 25/11/2008

Tabled Date: 25/11/2008

Responded By: Hon Stephen Robertson MP on 2/02/2009

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
The petition of the residents of North West Queensland of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House that the operating theatre of the Hughenden Health Centre has been decommissioned. Your petitioners therefore request the House to immediately recommission and upgrade the operating theatre. This is a matter of urgency, to relieve the pressure off Townsville Health Services for elective and minor surgeries. Your petitioners also request that Queensland Health make it a priority to appoint a flying surgeon to service regional and rural areas of North West Queensland.
