some notice of the question.
Stanley Fremantle Hospitals Group underwent an initial accreditation assessment
survey against the new eight National Safety and Quality in Health Standards,
and National Mental Health Standards on 13
to 17 June 2022. At the conclusion of the survey, the South Metropolitan Health
Service was advised of one not-met action, for comprehensive care

assessment was then subject to a review by the Australian Commission on Safety
and Quality in Health Care, which selected Fiona Stanley Hospital for its
review due to its status as a large hospital
and the first to be subject to a review under the new national standards. Fiona
Stanley Hospital will be subject to final review by the surveyors who
will determine whether any of those have been addressed and are ready for
closure. South Metropolitan Health Service is on track to address outstanding
not-met actions to ensure it receives full accreditation once the assessment is
