Queensland Health has a better outlook, so who deserves credit?

‘It’s a sign of how much has changed in a few years that health has barely featured in the Queensland election campaign, despite being one of the issues that voters still say they care most about.

‘That doesn’t mean that everything has gone smoothly in Queensland health over the past three years. But after the health controversies that dogged the previous Labor government, the fact that the issue has slipped out of the spotlight ahead of the January 31 poll is a sign of improvement.

Interestingly, the current Liberal National government and Health Minister Lawrence Springborg, as well as the previous Labor government in certain areas, all deserve to share some of the credit for those recent improvements.
