Di Farmer – The Labor Candidate (and former Member) for seat of Bulimba

A Community Health Forum is being held on Saturday 11th October, hosted by Di Farmer the Labor Candidate for the state seat of Bulimba.

In an invitation delivered to residents, Ms Farmer invited locals to have their say on what can be done to improve health services for the community.

“It’s time we spoke out about our concerns over losing doctors and nurses and other health professionals from our public hospitals, cuts to health services, long waiting lists, and other health-related issues,” Ms Farmer has stated in the flyer.

“That’s why I’ve been working with an independent group of concerned local residents and health professionals to organize a Community Health Forum.

“The Forum is a way for the community to have a say on how things can be improved – so that we can get back to having the health services we deserve in Queensland.”

A panel of speakers, guided by an independent facilitator, will discuss a range of current issues related to the health system.

Speakers include:

  • Dr Anthony Lyneham, Maxillo – facial surgeon, Member for Stafford
  • Ms Beth Mohle – Secretary, Queensland Nurses Union
  • Dr Scott Horsburgh, local GP
  • A local family, sharing their experiences of the health system
