Labor replaces 'locals' with 'mates' in Health Boards shake up

12 May 2017 4:41 PMJohn-Paul Langbroek

It's a case of “you get a job” and “you get a job' for Labor ex-Ministers, MPs, staffers and ex-Directors General in the late Friday announcement of local Hospital and Health Board appointments.

LNP Shadow Minister for Health John-Paul Langbroek said the sneaky late Friday dump of board appointments showed Labor had no shame in helping its mates instead of everyday Queenslanders.


"This is a slap in the face to local communities and local regions when Labor mates have pushed out hard- working locals from Hospital and Health Board appointments," Mr Langbroek said.


"On the Sunshine Coast, ex-Labor MP from Townsville Anita Phillips scored a plum job.


"In Brisbane's North, ex-Labor MP for Aspley Bonney Barry has made a comeback to the Metro North board.


"Ex-Labor Minister and Party Leader Tim Mulherin has scored another round on the gravy train in Mackay, backed up by ex-Labor staffer Karla Steen who also got another round on the board.


"Labor's go-to ex-director general Rachel Hunter scored another four years as chair of the Children's Hospital board.


"One thing is certain - Labor is clearing the decks for an impending election to ensure it has its own people in key places.


"An LNP government will create jobs across Queensland and better manage our finances to provide better health services for all Queenslanders."
