Hi Website
The Queensland Government has announced an enquiry into aged care, palliative care, assisted dying and end of life. 
All aspects of aged care, including euthanasia, will be canvassed in a new Queensland government inquiry, the premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, has announced.

“Too many families are troubled by the cost and complexity of aged care,” Palaszczuk said.

“Every single person wants to know that their loved one gets the best possible support, care and services.”

“This is an issue we must discuss, this is an issue we must confront,” she said.

Submissions are being sought by all of the community on this important issues and close on 15th April 2019.
