The non-profit medical clinic, Weipa Medical Clinic, was all set to be closed down before the intervention of Queensland Government. The government has assured to the public that the clinic would not be closed down.
The clinic was about to shut down, in the month of June, when two family doctors left the clinic to work somewhere else. However, now these doctors have been replaced by Queensland Health doctors. The Health Minister, Lawrence Springborg, has said that new operators would be required to be found so that the working of the private clinics could be looked after.
Lawrence Springborg said, "It's not the core responsibility of Queensland Health to operate private medical centres. Queensland Health will step in and fill the bill". The background of the Health Minister is quite confusing as the previous work by him has led to lots of misrepresentation of the policies.
For instances, the Family Planning Queensland (FPQ) doesn't provide adequate information about the sexual and reproductive services. In fact, the information provided at FPQ is confusing. Critics believe that as compared to Lawrence, the Bjelke-Petersen government had a better vision of the women's reproductive health services.
