Sex Worker Health Services At Risk - Judy Spence Relinquishes Health Staff Of Confidentiality

Police Minister Judy Spence is taking her first foray into the issue of health by relinquishing all health staff of ethical, professional and confidentiality standards, only if they are dealing with sex workers (Clause 31, proposed S134A, of the Prostitution Amendment Act 2006). The health staff will be free to make arbitrary judgements about sex workers’ intellectual capability, with full immunity from defamation laws. This breach of privacy is not in keeping with the Governments’ efforts to improve the Queensland health system – by removing all accountability from health staff on these matters, it is simply a time bomb.
