Important Update: Lady Cilento Children's Hospital

Posted on February 6, 2015

After meeting with a group of concerned members from the medical staff at LCCH yesterday I wrote to the Director General of Queensland Health asking him to sit down with us and address the ongoing issues for staff at the LCCH.

At the meeting we raised several matters with the DG, including doctor contracts and resourcing.

Constructive discussions were also had with the Board Chair and Chief Executive Officer of the LCCH at this meeting about the difficult working environment and ways to improve ongoing engagement about these issues. I understand they will be distributing an all-staff message on this shortly.

Following our meeting I then held a joint press conference with the Board Chair, to reinforce the high quality of care that you provide at the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital.

Thank you for continuing to raise your concerns to make sure that your services are the best they can be. It is only because you have spoken up that your key concerns can be addressed.

We have organised a members' meeting in the Auditorium for next Thursday 12 Febuary at 12:00pm.  I hope to see many of you there to discuss how we go forward together.
