E-Petition for midwifery model of care for Beaudesert

In a previous blog post, MC member Alison Gaffney reported about the public meeting held to discuss the proposed re-opening of the Beaudesert maternity service.

This E-Petition has been sponsored by Independent MP for Beaudesert Aidan McLindon, calling for a midwifery model of care for Beaudesert. The petition closes on 13 September.

From the E-Petition:
TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland citizens draws to the attention of the House that since the closing of the maternity ward in 2001, women in the Beaudesert region have been unable to access vital birthing facilities in their local area.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to introduce a midwife based model of care programs in the Beaudesert Hospital.
