Description

The "Commission of Inquiry into the care and treatment of patients in the psychiatric unit of the Townsville General Hospital [Ward 10B], between 2nd March 1975 and 20th February 1988" was established on 31 May 1990.

The Commission 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. After the finalisation of the Inquiry on February 1992, and following the August 1992 Cabinet decision No. 02375, and Interdepartmental Working Group negotiated with Bevan & Griffin solicitors and with Mr Drew of Counsel formal offers of compensation to a number of patients/ex-patients of Ward 10B.

This series consists of working papers and correspondence regarding assessments made of individual cases. The assessments are presented in alphabetical order by name of the patient/ex-patient.
