Description
ESTABLISHMENT:
On 3 April 2012, under Administrative Arrangements Order (No. 3) 2012, the Department of Health was renamed Queensland Health.

On 21 December 2017, under the Administrative Arrangements Order (No.4) 2017, this Department continued to operate under the same name with no changes to responsibilities.

FUNCTIONS:
In 2011, the Queensland Government, as a party to the 2011 National Health Reform Agreement between the Commonwealth, States and Territories, undertook to reform its health system to improve service delivery, accountability and responsiveness to local communities. The structural changes were implemented through the Hospital and Health Boards Act 2011, which devolved responsibility for the delivery of health services in public hospitals and other public health facilities to 17 new statutory authorities known as Hospital and Health Services (HHSs). These changes became operational on 1 July 2012. As a result, the Department's size and frontline role were significantly reduced. It continued to regulate healthcare services, but its main operational function shifted to negotiating and managing Service Level Agreements between the Director-General and each of the Hospital and Health Services.

As at 21 December 2017, Queensland Health's functions remain the same as at 1 July 2013 and 16 February 2015, with the exception of the Ambulance Service (see note below):
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health
Alcohol and drug services
Community health services
Disease surveillance
Health care for special needs groups
Health promotion
Health rights
Hospitals
Mental health
Nursing homes and hostels
Offender Health Services of prisoners
Oral health
Public health
Registration of health professionals

From 1 October 2013, Queensland Health assumed responsibility for the Queensland Ambulance Service, previously administered by the Department of Community Safety. From 16 February 2015, responsibility for the Queensland Ambulance Service was transferred to the Queensland Ambulance Service agency.


ADMINISTRATIVE STRUCTURE:
With the implementation of the new arrangements from 1 July 2012, Queensland Health was reduced to three divisions, two commercialised business units and the Office of the Director-General. The HHSs are independent statutory authorities, accountable directly to the Queensland Parliament.
