Electors of the Division of Nicklin draws to the attention of the House the closure of birthing services at Nambour Hospital, despite high quality evidence and support of local birthing options under the national maternity plan.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to call on the Health Minister to re-open Nambour Hospital Birthing Unit by the end of 2018.
