Total Signatures - 490

Sponsoring Member: Michael Crandon MP

Tabled Date: 23/11/2010

Responded By: Hon Stephen Robertson MP on 21/12/2010

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 that elderly, frail, and often disabled residents and those with dementia, residing in aged care facilities, are often unable to leave the facility for dental treatment.

 

Your petitioners therefore request the rollout of the super sized dental vans be sped up to provide basic dental treatment for residents living in aged care facilities.
