Responded By: Hon Stephen Robertson MP on 15/11/2007

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
This Petition of the residents of Queensland draws to the attention of the house the present situation in which qualified natural healing practitioners are not recognised by the Queensland Health system and are unable to work alongside conventional medical practitioners. This limits the patient access to the best possible outcome, as entire fields of care are denied to them. Your petitioners therefore request the house change relevant laws to allow qualified natural healing practitioners, in fields such as herbalism, naturopathy, therapeutic massage, acupuncture, kinesiology and Feng Shui, to be recognised and allowed to practice within the Queensland Public Health system.
