Women's and Children's Hospital

In reply to the Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) ().1 December 2022).

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector): The Minister for Health and Wellbeing has advised:

The Women's and Children's Health Network was advised via letter from the College of Intensive Care Medicine of Australia and New Zealand (the college) on 25 November 2022. The Minister for Health and Wellbeing's office received a copy of this letter on 28 November 2022.

The college's report points out that this in no way is a reflection on the dedication of the medical and nursing staff in the unit, nor is it a reflection on the level of care provided to patients.

The Women's and Children's Health Network is developing an action plan and is working closely with the college to identify a pathway back to training accreditation.
