Registrations are now open for the “Health Crisis Meeting” in Kingaroy on August 9 which is being organised by the LNP.
The meeting will be held from 10:30am at St John’s Lutheran School Hall at 92 Ivy Street.
Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington said Opposition Leader David Crisafulli and Shadow Minister for Health Ros Bates would also be attendance.
“It’s an opportunity for our community to speak up, demand change and fight for the health care we deserve,” Mrs Frecklington said.
“It’s an opportunity to support our stressed and overworked doctors and nurses.
“Since the opening of the new Kingaroy Hospital in early 2021, I have been asking the Labor Government questions about staffing at the facility, problems with its construction and the lack of services we are still experiencing.
“There is no doubt that the Kingaroy Hospital is a beautiful new building, and our community deserves this investment. However, while we have a shiny new hospital it has not guaranteed shiny new services. Help us shine a light on the problems we are facing with hospital services in our region.
“Our doctors, nurses and other health staff are working as hard as they can, but the Queensland Health system is failing both them and patients.”
The Kingaroy forum is the 20th “Queensland Health Crisis” meeting organised by the LNP.
The MPs plan to take the personal experiences and stories of South Burnett residents straight to the floor of Parliament House to demand action and change.
Registrations to attend the meeting can be made online
