Mr Chris Seiboth, Executive Director Community, Indigenous and Subacute Services showed Board members the great work occurring at Brighton Health Campus. Board members attended a staff forum and toured the rehabilitation gym. The staff expertise, particularly in stroke rehabilitation, is first class. The current available equipment for both inpatients and outpatients is outstanding. Brighton is well positioned to become, not only a Queensland leader, but a national leader in stroke rehabilitation, especially when Australia’s first robot assisted therapy unit arrives later this year.
The Board meeting was chaired by Dr Paul Alexander AO and a range of matters were considered at the meeting including:
- Reports by the Chief Executive and Executive Team, including the Metro North Quality Report, Operations Report, Finance Report and Workplace Health and Safety Report.
- Updates on Brighton Steering Committee and the development of the Herston Quarter were discussed.
- A monthly update on Metro North Communications and a report on workplace health and safety education across Metro North.
- Metro North Risk Framework, Metro North Compliance Framework, Strategic Plan Update and Caboolture Hospital Level 3 Ward refurbishment. The Board welcomed the opportunity to hear from the Director-General, Department of Health, Mr Michael Walsh on his vision and priorities for transforming healthcare.
