The Medical Board of Australia has put interim arrangements in place to manage the work of the Queensland Board of the Medical Board of Australia.

Health ministers appoint members to state and territory boards of the Medical Board of Australia. There is currently no Queensland Board of the Medical Board of Australia.

The Medical Board of Australia has made arrangements to deal with the core work of the state board in making registration and notification decisions about individual practitioners.

Notifications: The Medical Board of Australia has delegated powers to deal with notifications about practitioners’ conduct and performance to the Queensland Medical Interim Notifications Group (QMING). This will ensure that notifications from Queensland can be assessed, investigated and managed. The following individuals have been appointed to the QMING:

  • Ms Stephanie Gallagher (Chair), Legal practitioner
  • Professor Ian Gough, Registered medical practitioner
  • Dr Mark Waters, Registered medical practitioner
  • Associate Professor Eleanor Milligan, Community member

Registrations: The Medical Board of Australia has appointed a Queensland Registration Committee made up of Board and Committee members from New South Wales and has expanded the powers of the Registration Committee to enable it to operate in the absence of a state board in Queensland.

Health: The Health Committee in Queensland has been retained and its powers have been expanded so it can operate in the absence of a state board.
