Minister for Health and Ambulance Services
The Honourable Yvette D'Ath

The co-location of the Maternity and Gynaecology Ward at RBWH is a temporary measure.

I share stakeholder concerns about its location and as such, Metro North has withdrawn the proposal to permanently co-locate Gynaecology and Maternity, and is actively pursuing alternative options with stakeholders.
