BIRUU Health has now conducted a series of open community meetings across the Bellarine on behalf of the State Government, as the first step in developing a Strategic Area-based Health Service Plan for the Bellarine.
Unfortunately, these meetings were called at very short notice and attendees did not represent a wide cross section of the community. However, a number of areas of concern were raised:-
Today the Member for Bellarine the Hon. Lisa Neville MP facilitated a meeting for BACA representatives to meet with the Minister for Health the Hon. Jill Hennessy MP .
The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the ongoing angst in the community relating to the decision by the Board of Bellarine Community Health to withdraw from the provision of residential aged care, and the processes the Board adopted.
The Minister clearly indicated she understood the depth of this -community angst and concern about the processes adopted by the Board and will consider a range of options which will address the issues raised.
