The review below that gets deleted is 100% accurate. More staff and members off the public should report dr. Christina Hirst when they experience this from her. Something needs to be done about this doctor. I'm going to paste below the review that below she needs to be stopped. Dr Christina Hirst of the Royal Brisbane Women’s Hospital, Mental Health Centre, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, is an old-school consultant psychiatrist who, I believe, views human beings who are experiencing distress, or problems in their life, or who have so called mental illness, as inferior human beings, who she can mistreat behind closed doors. Perhaps there is something very wrong with her. She puts patients under Involuntary Treatment Orders and keeps them under these Orders when they do not satisfy the criteria under the Mental Health Act 2000 (Qld). Any challenge to her authority is met with retaliation and more mistreatment. Behind closed door she humiliates, mocks, and demeans patients. She does this in front of nurses and psychiatric registrars who appear to be intimidated by her – who do not seem to have the courage to speak out against her – but whistleblowers in Queensland Health have their lives ruined, and that is well known. Dr Hirst will mislead the Mental Health Review Tribunal to have her own way. She fails to compile a full medical history of a patient before making a treatment plan – if this plan fails she keeps adding more and more medications and increases the dose. She does not know the difference between a reaction to medication and mental health. She is rude and abrasive. She recommends ECT not as a last resort but immediately. She abuses her powers under the Mental Health Act 2000 (Qld) as a psychiatrist in the public mental health system - and this seems to please her. Dr Hirst must be held accountable for the harm she has done, and she has already appeared before the Coroner. Reporting her to RBWH will make no difference and they will cover up her mistakes. She should be removed from her position before she does any more harm to human beings behind closed doors at RBWB. If your loved one is ever placed under her care please remove them asap.

I have worked with Dr Hirst for four years. She is very experienced, particularly when working with women. She has an advanced knowledge in working with trauma and women with vulnerabilities. Christina has worked with some very complex individuals and always maintains compassion and professionalism.

Dr Christina Hirst is a brilliant psychiatrist with excellent clinical skills in addition to empathy and interpersonal skills. Far superior to any other psychiatrist I have encountered.

Dr Hirst is a fantastic doctor. She shows strong amounts of empathy to people who have been traumatised. She is a passionate, hard working doctor. The questions she asks open up many doors to much more information than most psychiatrists ask. She saved my life on several occasions.
