Open the Redland Bay Mental Health Facility

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Deborah Kellie
PO Box 948
BEENLEIGH QLD 4207

Total Signatures - 93

Sponsoring Member: Jo-Ann Miller MP

Posting Date: 22/08/2014

Closing Date: 1/02/2015

Tabled Date: 26/03/2015

Responded By: Hon Cameron Dick MP on 28/04/2015

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that the former Labor Government commissioned and constructed a 20 bed community care unit in Redland Bay to provide care for Queenslanders recovering from mental illness. Unfortunately the facility was not opened as planned and the Minister for Health, the Honourable Lawrence Springborg MP, has not taken the necessary actions ensure this facility can be managed by the Metro South Hospital and Health Service. 

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to condemn the Newman LNP Government for their failure at not supporting the Redland Bay community by making operational a mental health facility that the Queensland taxpayers have already funded and call on the Newman LNP Government to immediately open the Redland Bay community care unit.
