CONTROVERSY continues to surround Queensland Health after the court case involving South West Hospital and Health Service boss Graem Kelly was again adjourned on January 8.

The disgraced chief executive stood before the Roma Magistrates Court for the second time in as many months after his case was originally adjourned in November.

The 53-year-old was stood down on full pay and has been charged with three counts of fraud and five counts of making a false claim as an official.

It is alleged the offences occurred between February and August last year.

During the investigation, board chair Dr Julia Leeds stood aside to "avoid a potential conflict of interest".

Deputy chair and board member Lindsay Godfrey is acting as chair until the matter is resolved, while Glynis Schultz, a senior Queensland Health executive, has been appointed acting chief executive.

Mr Kelly will appear again on Tuesday,

March 11.
