Tabled Date: 16/09/2015

Responded By: Hon Cameron Dick MP on 16/10/2015

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

The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House that the former Government of Queensland closed the Pathology Department at the Maryborough Hospital resulting in delays in the return of pathology often resulting in life threatening consequences for patients.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to restore the Pathology Department at the Maryborough Hospital to a functioning pathology unit. Enabling it to deliver pathology services to the Maryborough electorate without delay, therefore, minimising negative patient outcomes.
