Gatton Star - - YOUR SAY -

■ Top-notch sup­port for emer­gency birth

I’m glad mummy and baby are well. It’s great to hear a suc­cess story. - Josephine Ma­her

It’s about time our lo­cal hos­pi­tals were up­graded to in­clude birthing suites in­stead of moth­ers hav­ing to travel to Ip­swich or Toowoomba. That's just ridicu­lous!!! - Glenda Plog

Lai­d­ley would have al­ready had one with op­er­at­ing rooms many years ago but you can blame the Goss Govt and La­bor for it not hap­pen­ing. The plans were drawn up, works were about to start when Goss Govt got in and it was one the first things the health min­is­ter at the time canned. From there La­bor stripped all the lit­tle hos­pi­tals of their ma­ter­nity suites and pushed the equip­ment to Ip­swich, Toowoomba and Bris­bane. These hos­pi­tals in­cluded, Lai­d­ley, Esk and Gat­ton that all had ma­ter­nity suites that they lost. Gat­ton lost its in the early 90s, Lai­d­ley and Esk late 80s. - Kaileana Lund

■ Large hail and dam­ag­ing winds ex­pected Noth­ing at all in Gat­ton. - Jean­nine Smith

Noth­ing at Spring Creek ei­ther. - John Mc­don­nell

Pretty sure BOM has ab­so­lutely no idea what they are do­ing!!! - Sasha Sand­ford
