PREMIER Anna Bligh has welcomed news that alleged Queensland Health fraudster Joel Morehu-Barlow has been arrested by police.

Mr Morehu-Barlow was arrested in the early hours of Monday morning at his Newfarm address.

"Police have acted calmly and methodically and covered all the bases. This morning they got their man," Ms Bligh said.

"I want to congratulate them for their police work on behalf of the people of Queensland."

Ms Bligh said Mr Morehu-Barlow's arrest was not the end of the matter.

"This is just the beginning. It is unacceptable that this could happen and we are working to close any loopholes that exist," she said.

"The courts will deal with Mr Morehu-Barlow and we will deal with the system that allowed him to think he could get away with it."
