Public hospital for the Cooloola Coast region

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Heather Steinberg
1 Toolara Road
TIN CAN BAY QLD 4580

Total Signatures - 23

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 22/12/2010

Closing Date: 22/03/2011

Tabled Date: 23/03/2011

Responded By: Hon Geoff Wilson MP on 19/04/2011

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the lack of medical services for the Cooloola Coast region.  In particular, the lack of a public / community hospital for local residents who are required to rely upon the local Queensland Ambulance Service or medivac services when needing urgent medical care.  This places increasing pressure on the local Ambulance Service who have to transport patients large distances to the nearest hospital at Gympie and leaving the area with a reduced Ambulance Service.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to provide funding for the establishment of a public / community hospital in Tin Can Bay to service the Cooloola Coast region and its many visitors.
