Statement from LNP Shadow Health Minister John-Paul Langbroek

20 Oct 2017 1:00 PMJohn-Paul Langbroek

"Annastacia Palaszczuk and Labor are putting prisoners ahead of patient safety at one of Queensland's busiest hospitals.

"This is an absolute joke and shows how out of touch Labor are when it comes to managing our health system.


"Putting hardened crims in beds next to the frail and sick is downright outrageous.


"The Premier needs to step in and overturn this direction as her do-nothing Minister is ignoring the problem.


"Anyone who thinks that this is a good idea is kidding themselves.


"Hospital staff are not prison guards and patients don't want to be looking over their shoulder when a criminal is wheeled in next to them.


"Patient safety should be paramount over prisoners every time yet Labor seem to think otherwise.


"Every Queenslander would be shaking their heads at this decision and it needs to be quashed immediately.


"Only the LNP will deliver safe and liveable communities."
