Mr LAMING (Bowman) (19:34): Redland Hospital offers incredible service to my electorate under difficult conditions, but the funding over the last two years from the state government has risen only 10 per cent overall, and that is half of the increase in health and hospital funding to other health and hospital areas around Queensland. Why that is is something that will have to be answered by local state Labor MPs, but I want to deliver tonight unfettered the Facebook threads that reflect feedback from my constituents. My job is not to filter their opinions. I asked them yesterday for their verdict on Redland Hospital. Matt Harvey wrote:

Used to work there. It needs an ICU. It needs 24 hour operating theatre availability.

Sheridan Cuyler:

I have children and over the years we have made trips to emergency for two broken limbs, a knee dislocation, stitches and a burst appendix. Apparently there are no funds to staff the paediatric ward at night so children are moved to the adult ward.

Lucy Anne:

A whole overhaul. Buy land over the road, build a new hospital and have a bridge linking the old with the new …

Nicole Lynch:

Redlands hospital need doctors that can do their job properly

Amy Creighton:

ED needs to expand to relieve ambulance ramping times. Also a palliative care ward. Car park expansion.

Dominique Glading:


Kat Lovell

Parking—its shocking!

Tara Young:

I had a baby 13 days ago at the redlands hospital and spent 6 nights there. new computer system—

for 6 nights and 6 days every single shift NOT one staff knew the system.

Elizabeth Papalia:

Definitely more parking …

Bec Sims:

Im not an employee but parking has recently become a nightmare. Its to the point where one needs to take public transport to a hosptial thats five minutes down the road …

Health should be taken away from state … and federally run.

Mersina Bee:

Just there today with my daughter and a broken bone … the parking was shocking. However, the care was exceptional. The nurses and doctors were fantastic. The wait times are not nearly as bad as when I lived in Sydney!

Linda Meredith:

Car park

Emily Wilson:

A bloody car park for afternoon staff. It should not take 45 minutes driving around—

to get a place. Kevin Cuyler:

… I don't think the Redlands Hospital has grown at the same pace as the Redlands has.

Jesse Firebug:

Less wait time in emergency. I was taken in by ambulance and waited in the hall way for an hour on an ambulance bed then was kicked off that to go wait in the waiting room. Absolutely disgusting!

Emma Elder:

I'm not an employee but have 3 family members who work there, as well as 1 recently born there and 1 recently passed away there. Priority is the emergency department, there's not enough beds or staff, it's beyond a joke.

Rowanne McKenzie:

I'm not an employee but a resident with 3 children. Parking is a nightmare. I've had to leave my 9 year old in Emergency by himself while I parked the car down the road. The paediatric ward is not open at night …

Holly Underwood:

Ppl who give a sh#t. Honestly will never go back there have had too many dangerous experiences I hate that hospital.

Patrick Fraser:

If it's still the same as when I was young, doctors who speak English and actually know what they were doing would be great.

More parking! Staff and patients are forced to park on the grass then the council comes and fines each car …

Melanie Jai:

Kathryn Ebsworth:

There is not enough high dependency or any intensive care beds for surgical patients to be cared for post operatively so we cannot provide those procedures to patients nor can we take on patients with multiple co-morbidites.

and back—
