Cilento review won't be witch hunt: Dick

A major review into Brisbane's much-maligned Lady Cilento Children's Hospital won't be a witch hunt.

Queensland Health Minister Cameron Dick announced an independent review into the $1.5 billion hospital's commissioning on Sunday.

It follows a clinical review, released last month, that found confusion and dysfunction plagued the facility's first fortnight of operation.

But the latest review won't simply be about allocating blame, he said.

"It's about capturing lessons.

"This is not a witch hunt," he said."

Questions raised about training, staffing levels and the readiness of on-site facilities would all be probed, he said.

The lessons learnt will help make future projects - like another new hospital for the Sunshine Coast - run smoother.

While he conceded Lady Cilento's opening might've been rushed, Mr Dick said it was now operating well.

But Together secretary Alex Scott said the latest review should address ongoing issues of under-resourcing instead of simply focusing on the site's imperfect start.

In particular, public sector union head said more staff would be needed the traditionally busier winter months to maintain proper patient care.

The earlier clinical review found the Lady Cilento site experienced a number of teething problems when it opened last November, such as disoriented staff and missing medical records.

The transition of 3000-odd staff and patients from the merged Mater and Royal Children's hospitals to the south Brisbane site involved "unprecedented" challenges, it found.

The latest review is due for completion on June 30.
