Health Minister Jenny Mikakos is promising to visit the cramped Warrnambool Base Hospital this year, more than 200 days after being invited.
“All of the staff here are doing such tremendous work but it is clear the complexity and acuity of patients that are coming to this hospital is now increasing. The demands are growing. The hospital needs to have that assurance and certainty.
South West Coast MP Roma Britnell said it had been more than 200 days since she invited Ms Mikakos to visit the hospital.
“There is no question that this is not a fact of need, not a desire, not what we want to make it all look pretty. This is what we need to make it functional.
