Stirling Hinchliffe and Queensland Labor are committed to the future of front-line health service delivery at the Brighton Health Campus.

“Over the last number of months, I have been participating with the Sandgate residents and the Metro North Hospital and Health Service in considering future health service delivery at this location.

“Outcomes of clinical and community consultation about the Brighton Health Campus point to a clear focus on enhanced rehabilitation services, transitional care and services for our community.

“A Draft Clinical Services Plan proposes to transition the Campus into a centre of excellence in aged care, empowering locals to live an active and healthy lifestyle in their old age.

This exciting new phase will enhance the founding values of exceptional care and compassion which for over 70 years have seen the Brighton Health Campus (Eventide) deliver for our community.

The Draft Clinical Services Plan includes enhanced options in rehabilitation, transitional care and extended services for our community, strengthening the traditional aged care services in the Eventide Tradition.

Minister for Health and Minister for Ambulance Services, Cameron Dick MP, said that this plan was only possible due to the hard work of Stirling Hinchliffe.

“The Nicholls/Newman Government was in the process of cutting services at the Brighton Health Campus with a view to selling the land to developers.
“That was never Stirling’s plan.

“He’s consistently advocated that services should be maintained and improved for his community.

“Only Stirling Hinchliffe and a re-elected Palaszczuk Labor Government can be trusted to maintain frontline health services at the Brighton Health Campus.
