Pain management specialist located in Bundaberg

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Danka Carlton
13 Memory Boulevard

Total Signatures - 85

Sponsoring Member: Mr Stephen Bennett MP

Posting Date: 1/05/2018

Closing Date: 15/08/2018

Tabled Date: 21/08/2018

Responded By: Hon Dr Steven Miles MP on 20/09/2018

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 a specialist Pain Management Clinic located in the Wide Bay to meet the needs of regional and rural patients. Closure of the Pain Management Clinic in Bundaberg has resulted in health deterioration of some patients and lengthy travel to consult face to face with specialists. Patients have to travel to Nambour for assistance from as far afield as Agnes Water, Monto and Eidsvold and need access to a locally provided service.

Your petitioners, therefore request the House to prioritise funding for the provision of a Pain Management Specialist at the Bundaberg Hospital to support sufferers of chronic pain conditions.
