Miles should have been dumped not promoted

Published:

LNP Shadow Health Minister Ros Bates said Steven Miles should have been sacked last year, not promoted to become the Deputy Premier of Queensland.

“As the Health Minister he has overseen an 86% increase in surgery waiting lists, record ambulance ramping and a public health system that has lurched from crisis to crisis,” Ms Bates said.

“Queenslanders will never forget the decision to waste hundreds of thousands of taxpayers’ dollars renaming the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital and the massive blow-out in health IT projects.

“This is a Minister who ordered that IT upgrades not happen during Parliamentary sitting weeks to avoid embarrassing questioning in Parliament – putting politics ahead of patient care.

“When he was caught out, he attacked a journalist for running the story.

“And of course, the dodgy poll he used to try and justify the Cilento renaming decision, which led to a Crime and Corruption Commission preliminary investigation and recommendations to overhaul future government online surveys.

“On that occasion Miles may have escaped a full-scale CCC investigation, but his behavior was definitely unethical and most Queenslanders would see it as dodgy.

“Despite all of these failures, Annastacia Palaszczuk refused to take action and stood by Steven Miles as the Health Minister.

“The Palaszczuk Labor Government is a bad government headed by a weak Premier.

“Chaos and confusion reigns supreme because of the lack of leadership of Annastacia Palaszczuk.

“Palaszczuk is a weak Premier run by the factions and the union bosses and Queenslanders deserve better.”
