Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington says the decision by the State Government to not inform GPs and pharmacists before making its free flu vaccine announcement has created chaos for doctors and patients across the region.
Mrs Frecklington said the announcement caught health professionals off guard and scrambling for information.
“Our local GPs and pharmacists were not warned about this announcement and only found out about the change via the media after patients started contacting them,” Mrs Frecklington said.
“They are rightly upset they received no notice as it caused a great deal of confusion, anxiety and upset for their staff and their patients.
“This is a just another example of the Labor Government’s inability to plan, and also their lack of respect for our hardworking health professionals.”
