Description

The "Commission of Inquiry into the care and treatment of patients in the psychiatric unit of the Townsville General Hospital" was to investigate whether between 1975 to 1988 any patient in the Psychiatric Unit (Ward 10B) was cared for or treated in a manner which was negligent, unsafe, unethical or unlawfull, and if so, to establish whether there was sufficient evidence to prosecute or take disciplinary proceedings. The final report can be found in items 1515067 and 1515068 of series 19428.

The records in this series were created by the Health Department during the conduct of the Inquiry. Included are: correspondence about disciplinary action/possible disciplinary action to be taken against certain individuals, papers and correspondence of a Commission of Inquiry Support Unit (formed by the Health Department to oversee matters of legal action, insurance, policy, publications, records, transcripts, etc.), and a copy set of Transcripts of Public Hearings from Day 4 to Day 63.
