The State Opposition says a Brisbane man has been waiting nine months for urgent brain surgery that was supposed to happen within 30 days.
The case was raised in Parliament this morning.
LNP Health spokesman Mark McArdle has challenged Health Minister Paul Lucas to intervene.
“Will the Minister today visit Mr Hans Hagen, a 70-year-old Forest Lake resident to explain to Mr Hagen in person why he has been waiting 267 days for urgent brain surgery?” Mr McArdle said.
“Or will the Minister continue to sit here and pat himself on the back for the great job he says he is doing?”
Mr Lucas has promised to act.
“If the Honourable Member gives me the details of it then I am more than happy to have my department urgently examine it,” he said.
“If someone is waiting over that period of time for that sort of surgery then I’d be extremely concerned about it.”
