The Hon. G.G. BROCK (Frome) (15:30): My question is also to the minister representing the Minister for Health and Wellbeing in the house. Minister, can you update the house on the question I asked on 21 September regarding a Dean Marshall from Clare? He needs to have chemo treatment but was not able to have it at Clare and had to go to Gawler. With your leave, I will just explain a bit further, Mr Speaker.

Leave granted.

The Hon. G.G. BROCK: Dean’s treatment was arranged by staff at the Royal Adelaide Hospital to be carried out at Clare Hospital but, upon arriving, he was advised that the tablets that were required were missing. After several phone calls, the tablets were found. However, Dean was then told to come back the next day, prior to having to then travel to Gawler with the tablets that he had collected prior to leaving Clare. He has now been advised he will need to travel to Gawler each time for treatment and not to Clare Hospital. The minister did indicate on 21 September he was going to get an answer from the Minister for Health and bring it back, but I haven’t seen an answer at this stage.

The Hon. J.A.W. GARDNER (Morialta—Minister for Education) (15:31): I will take that question on notice.
