Lovell renews calls for Stage 2 GV Health redevelopment status and Masterplan release.

redevelopment status and Masterplan release.

The Liberal Member for Northern Victoria Wendy Lovell has again sought clarity on the progression of planning for Stage 2 of the Goulburn Valley Health redevelopment.

In a constituency question to Minister for Health Martin Foley in State Parliament recently, Ms Lovell sought an immediate update on the status of Stage 2 of the GV Health redevelopment and again called for the release of the GV Health Masterplan to the public.

Ms Lovell again questioned the State Government on the status of Stage 2 of the Goulburn Valley Health redevelopment and renewed her call for the hospital’s Masterplan to be released to the public.

Ms Lovell has constantly raised the importance of completing the full redevelopment of GV Health and has continuously sought a funding commitment from the Andrews Labor Government to complete Stage 2, but the government has failed to commit to completing the redevelopment.

Ms Lovell said when Mr Foley visited GV Health in January he was spruiking the Government’s funding of $2 million for planning of Stage 2 of the redevelopment, yet this funding was announced in May 2019 as part of the 2019-2020 State Budget.

Ms Lovell said two and a half years later, there was still no clarity on the progression of Stage 2 and the Minister needs to explain the status of this vital infrastructure project.

Comments attributable to Member for Northern Victoria Wendy Lovell:

“The Andrews Labor Government has continuously treated the Goulburn Valley community with contempt by refusing to release the GV Health Masterplan or update the public on the status of Stage 2 of the hospital redevelopment.

“The full redevelopment of GV Health is crucial to meet the healthcare needs of the Goulburn Valley region and I again call on the Minister to update the public on the progression of Stage 2 and finally release the Masterplan to provide certainty for the community.”
