Evidence shows hospitals that are the safest and provide the highest quality care are those with a dedicated focus on establishing and promoting a strong culture of safety and transparency.
In August 2018, the Honourable Steven Miles MP, Minister for Health and Minister for Ambulance Services, publicly announced the intention to launch an interactive website to give the public to access a range of information on Queensland’s public and private hospitals.
The proposed website will be co-designed with consumers and health professionals. It will allow consumers to view meaningful information about public and private health facilities, and compare this information across a range of quality and safety indicators.
Over the last several months, consumers and health professional stakeholders have been consulted about the type of content the proposed website should contain.
Clinical Excellence Queensland will continue to progress work in this important area. Stakeholder feedback from the consultation processes will be used to inform policy advice for the government’s consideration in 2019.
See the Queensland Health website for more information.
