Review into Peel Health Campus

Ministerial Release

Health Minister Kim Hames today announced an independent review of the Peel Health Campus.

Dr Hames acknowledged the work of the Estimates and Financial Operations Committee and the issues identified in its latest report.

“Quite clearly the State Government needs someone who comes from a medical administration background to review the allegations that have been raised,” he said.

“Under the contract between the State Government and Health Solutions, the Department of Health has the authority to review Peel’s service delivery, governance and other issues.

“In addition, eminent neurosurgeon Professor Bryant Stokes will undertake a review of the Peel Health Campus.

”Prof Stokes will be empowered to conduct a thorough review under the Public Sector Management Act.”

The Minister said Prof Stokes’ review would start immediately and focus on the evidence brought before the committee. 

“The Government’s primary concern is the standard of health care available to the Peel community.   I acknowledge the dedication of medical and support staff to the people who rely on this health service,” he said.

“If this review finds any evidence of serious wrongdoing, it will be dealt with and referred to the appropriate authorities.”

The #wa2013vote website will be kept online so politicians promises and statements can be checked until the end of next WA election in 2017, and after.
