Emma Green to meet with health investigator on Monday

GLADSTONE woman Emma Green will provide a statement to a Health Quality and Complaints Commission investigator on Monday.

Ms Green's full term, unborn baby died in the womb this month after she was repeatedly turned away from Rockhampton Hospital.

Family spokeswoman Sue Bishop said Queensland Health Minister Lawrence Springborg had been in contact with the family.

"He informed us a former Australian Medical Association director would head the investigation into Emma's case with the HQCC," she said.

"The action being taken is good but it can't bring this baby back."

Ms Green and her partner will spend the weekend in Canberra with family before returning to Gladstone next week.

Ms Bishop said the family would hold a funeral for baby Waylon Blake next Friday.

"It has devastated this family forever," she said.

"We just want to make sure this never happens again."

The HQCC is taking an oversight role of an investigation being undertaken by the Department of Health and the internal review being conducted by the Hospital and Health Service.
