Public forum to air concerns about health system

Greens Member for Ballina Tamara Smith today welcomed the announcement that the NSW Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee will hold a public forum in Lismore next Tuesday 24 October.

“The Committee is conducting an inquiry into the management of health care delivery in NSW. The inquiry was re-opened and extended due to concerns about the treatment of Miriam Merten, who died at Lismore Base Hospital in 2014, and I am glad to see that the Committee is holding a public forum in Lismore so that they can hear first-hand from people in the Northern Rivers region about their experiences with the health system,” said Ms Smith.

The inquiry will examine whether health practitioners and administrators have sufficient information to deliver high quality services and whether patients and their carers are also provided with reliable information to make informed choices about accessing the health system.

“If you would like to make a contribution to the inquiry, or if you have made a submission and would like to participate in discussion on the issues, please come along to the forum which will be held in the Lismore Workers Club,” said Ms Smith.
The public forum will start at 2pm, Tuesday 24 October 2017 at the Lismore Workers Club.
It will be followed by two days of formal public hearings at Parliament House in Sydney on 30 and 31 October 2017, where evidence will be taken from a range of agencies and peak organisations representing the health sector.
