Statement on VAHPA claims

Wednesday, 31 October 2018

Quotes attributable to: Barwon Health CEO Professor Ruth Salom

The VAHPA media release about MRI licences is misleading and we invite their representatives to meet with us to discuss their issues.

I am working closely with the Director of BMI to finalise our two applications for additional MRI licences. 

We are seeking to upgrade a half licence we currently have at the hospital to a full licence, and apply for a full licence for our Barwon Health North facility. 

This expansion of our bulk billed MRI services will address the growing demand in our community for MRI driven by the burgeoning Geelong population.
