Andrew Laming has been the federal member for the southern Moreton Bay seat of Bowman, Queensland, since 2004.

During his 14 years in parliament, he has fought tirelessly for his local community with a strong record of progress and delivery.

This includes delivering funding for: improved local roads; new health facilities (like the radiation oncology service opposite Redlands hospital); better mental health (including headspace and “Aftercare”); wireless phone towers; and support for a wide range of community groups.

An ophthalmologist before entering Parliament, Andrew has been a passionate voice on the national stage on health and education issues.

For example, Andrew was instrumental in breaking an impasse to help the listing of a new drug, “Xofigo” to help prostate cancer sufferers.

Andrew is a fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists and holds a Diploma in obstetrics and gynaecology from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, as well as a Master of Public Administration from the John F. Kennedy School of Government of Harvard University.
