Wide Bay Hospital and Health Board to receive new members

Published:

Wide Bay Hospital and Health Board will benefit from the experience and skills of new members Dr Sandra Rattenbury and Mr Leon Nehow and the reappointment of Ms Karen Prentis. In addition, Chair Ms Peta Jamieson and all other remaining members will retain their positions.

Deputy Premier and Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Steven Miles welcomed the news and said the combination of new skills and perspectives combined with the stability of the existing Board members would maintain the strength of the Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service.

“Both Leon and Sandra bring incredible experience with them,” Deputy Premier Miles said.

“Leon has extensive experience in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships and corrective services, while Sandra has impressive skills and interests in primary health care, emergency medicine, medical leadership and administration. “I am also pleased to announce Ms Karen Prentis has been reappointed and Ms Jamieson continues as Chair.

Member for Maryborough Bruce Saunders said he was excited to work with the reappointed Board to deliver the health response to this unprecedented pandemic.

“This board brings valuable skills and knowledge to the fight against COVID, we’ve done an incredible job so far, with only 24 total cases in Wide Bay HHS and they’ve all recovered,” Mr Saunders said.

“It’s a testament to the hard work of our frontline doctors, nurses, pathology staff, and everyone supporting them including the Board.”
