Answered on

GERALDTON HEALTH CAMPUS — MATERNITY SERVICES

907. Hon STEVE MARTIN to the minister representing the Minister for Health:

I refer to the decision by the St John of God Geraldton Hospital to suspend its maternity services from this week.

(1) Is Geraldton Health Campus fully staffed in relation to nurses, midwives and doctors?

(2) Will staffing levels be increased to cope with the extra demand on maternity services due to the St Johns closure?

(3) Are two birthing suites adequate to meet the demand of Geraldton and the midwest region?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. The following answer is provided on behalf of the Minister for Health.

(1)–(3) Yes.
