Delay of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Jean Gleed
19 Adelong Crescent

Total Signatures - 476

Sponsoring Member: Jarrod Bleijie MP

Posting Date: 4/08/2010

Tabled Date: 4/08/2010

Responded By: Hon Paul Lucas MP on 3/09/2010

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the unacceptable delay by at least two years of the opening of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in Kawana.  This delay will be detrimental to the health and wellbeing of Sunshine Coast residents and the local economy.  A return to the original promised timeframe of opening in 2014 is essential.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to adhere to the Government's original promise that stage one of the project which consists of 450 beds, is completed by 2014.
