Slippery Shannon Fails Transparency Test

When will the Health Minister release the data?

The LNP is calling on Shannon Fentiman to come clean, in her latest failure to be open and transparent with Queenslanders.

New developments uncovered by an LNP Question on Notice have revealed the Health Minister is refusing to release the amount of time ambulances are spending on ramps despite her previously releasing these figures, along with her predecessor Yvette D’Ath.

Ambulance ‘Lost Hours’ is a key metric in Queensland’s Health Crisis, as it captures important information on how many hours ambulances are spending on a ramp.

In a deceitful move, the Health Minister has chosen to provide the average time each ambulance loses when ramped – instead of providing a total for the actual hours lost.

With such a bad record as Health Minister, is it any surprise slippery Shannon Fentiman is trying to pull the wool over Queenslanders’ eyes?

Shadow Health Minister and Registered Nurse Ros Bates said this is just another example of why Queenslanders can’t trust Labor and has now written to the Speaker demanding answers.

“Shannon Fentiman said she’d be different to her predecessor Yvette D’Ath when it comes to transparency and she is, she’s worse,” Ms Bates said.

“With the Health Crisis getting worse under the Palaszczuk-Miles Government, Shannon Fentiman has become less accountable, less transparent and has failed to understand just saying you’re transparent doesn’t make it so.

“She’s overseen the worst ambulance ramping in the nation and she doesn’t want Queenslanders to know the truth about the Queensland Health Crisis.

“Her repeatedly deceitful actions paint a picture of a Minister in chaos and crisis who has no regard for transparency because she cares more about her own political survival than the survival of Queenslanders.”

“The Queensland Health Crisis will only get worse, the longer Labor is in power.

“The health system won’t change until the Government changes.

“Only the LNP has the right priorities for Queensland’s future, like having easier access to health services. We’ve also put solutions on the table to heal the Queensland Health Crisis including better resources, better triaging, sharing data in real-time and putting doctors and nurses back in charge to improve patient care.”
