ADMINISTRATIVE STRUCTURE:
The functions of the Health and Home Affairs Department were divided into two broad jurisdictions. The Health and Medical Services Branch, alternatively known as the Health Department, had administrative control of health, medical and allied services in Queensland. Although there was no formal sub-department for the remaining functions of the department, they were often collectively referred as the "Home Affairs Department". The Home Affairs Department had administrative control over native affairs, police, fire brigades, state children, prisons, local authorities, tourism, and other functions not directly related to health and medical services.

The Health and Home Affairs Chief Office was located in William Street Brisbane. The day to day administration of the Department was managed by the Under Secretary to the Minister for Health and Home Affairs.
