Fraser, Nola

  • Occupation Businesswoman, Nurse


Nola Fraser was well known as a whistle blower when she ran in the Macquarie Fields by-election (New South Wales Legislative Assembly) in 2005.


Nola Fraser was one of the whistle blowers who drew attention to the poor administrative and medical practices at Camden and Campbelltown Hospitals. She also claimed that at her meeting with Craig Knowles, the Minister responsible (and the man whose resignation necessitated the by-election) she had been threatened. At the ensuing Independent Commission Against Corruption Inquiry, her story was not believed.

At the time of the by-election she had left nursing and was running her own beauty salon. She achieved a 12% swing to the Liberal Party but did not win.
