The Victorian Government is committed to providing the best possible health care for all Victorians.
As part of this commitment, the Department of Health and Human Services is reviewing how public health care services are provided in Mildura and surrounding areas.
A private company has been operating Mildura Base Hospital in a contract arrangement with State Government, decided in 1998, and the agreement will expire in 2020 (with the possibility of extension to 2022).
Therefore, the department is taking the opportunity to listen to community views on the provision of health care services in Mildura now and into the future.
The review process will look at a range of areas including current health needs, projected future health requirements, current health care standards, feedback from health professionals and opinions from the community.
We want to hear what is important to you – because we want to make sure you receive meaningful health care services now and into the future.
Consultation with the community began in October 2018 and will close on the 28th February 2019.
