The Liberal National Party has urged the Palaszczuk Labor Government to stop wasting public money on renaming the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital.

"Annastacia Palaszczuk's proposal to change the name of the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital shows that her priorities are all wrong," LNP Leader Deb Frecklington said.

"Instead of wasting taxpayers' money trying to airbrush a pioneering female doctor from history, Labor should be trying to improve health services for our sickest kids.

"While Labor is fixated on a name, children at this hospital have been receiving chemo in the kitchen because of a bed shortage.

"I've spoken to the parents of young chemotherapy patients, like Louise and Nerida, and they cannot believe how out of touch and arrogant the Palaszczuk Government is.

"It's telling that Labor hasn't got the guts to tell the public how much the renaming of the hospital will cost.

"Annastacia Palaszczuk needs to back down on this decision – just like she did on her plan to rename a stand at Suncorp Stadium."
