Obstetrics practice co-location agreement between Gladstone Hospital and the Mater Hospital

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Kenneth Barnett
12 Carthurbie Court

Total Signatures - 462

Sponsoring Member: Mr Stephen Bennett MP

Posting Date: 16/10/2018

Tabled Date: 16/10/2018

Responded By: Hon Dr Steven Miles MP on 15/11/2018

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

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the appalling decision to close the Obstetrics practice at the Mater Hospital. The lack of effective, operational co-operation between Gladstone Hospital and the Mater, the long term incremental negative impacts of these closures.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House that there be a meeting of all stakeholders including local government, industry partners, community representatives, hospital board, base hospital and mater hospital management. The goals of the co-location agreement be reviewed and revitalised by an independent, appropriately qualified individual/entity.
