Question to the Minister for Health

In 2021, the Department of Health suspended or terminate 170 essential health workers because of their unvaccinated status. It appears also the Department suspended/terminated them under the same section of the code of conduct as the one reserved for those sacked for child sexual abuse. They are on the same list as those sacked for the heinous crimes of sexually abusing children! Over the last twelve months, employees from other departments were allowed to return back to work.
I have asked the Premier (and former Health Minister) previously, what is his Department doing especially in the current shortage of essential workers. I didn’t receive an answer. Today, I asked the same question from the new Health Minister.
