Do not privatise the Sunshine Coast University Hospital

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

William Gissane
30 Adaluma Avenue

Total Signatures - 1214

Sponsoring Member: Jo-Ann Miller MP

Posting Date: 19/02/2013

Closing Date: 19/08/2013

Tabled Date: 20/08/2013

Responded By: Hon Lawrence Springborg MP on 13/09/2013

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House:


- The proposal for the privatisation of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital was not foreshadowed by the LNP Government during the 2012 State Election and is not part of Campbell Newman's contract with voters of the Sunshine Coast region.

- The Sunshine Coast community is overwhelmingly opposed to the privatisation and wish the hospital to remain government owned and operated to ensure job security, fair work conditions, safe, quality health care and excellence in training our future health workforce.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to listen to and respect the concerns of the Sunshine Coast community and ensure the hospital remains government owned and run to provide access to free public health services for residents of the Sunshine Coast area.
