Recent publicity
The hospital has recently received national publicity. Dr Mohamed Haneef who had been working at the hospital since September 2006 was arrested in connection to terrorist attacks in the UK while leaving Australia on a one way ticket. Dr Haneef's temporary skilled worker permit was subsequently cancelled. All charges against Dr Haneef were subsequently dropped. The premier of Queensland, Mr Peter Beattie stated that Dr Haneef could return to work at the Gold Coast Hospital should the federal government reinstate Dr Haneef's work visa. Dr Brian Bell, the executive director of medical services at the Gold Coast Hospital, says many hospitals would welcome Dr Haneef onto their staff.
