Health service emergency clinic is being called for Bribie Island as the population grows bigger and so does the pressure on existing services at the Caboolture Hospital, Simone says that there is growing calls to minimise time to get to Caboolture Hospital and to be able to deal with Emergencies on the island would be prudent to look in to facilitating an emergency clinic on the island.
Funding for the Bribie Island Road which has been given approval by the Federal Government is still waiting for the State Minister for Roads to actually request it so that the funding can be distributed for improvements on the road, this issue is being prolonged by this crucial step being held back by the Minister.
