Private clinic closure

I am aware of the sudden closure of a private abortion clinic and can advise that the Department is investigating alternative options.

In the meantime, any women with concerns are encouraged to talk to their GP.

It is disappointing that Labor and the Greens are now trying to use this sensitive issue for some sort of political gain.

The issue is being handled at an operational level by health experts, as it should be, not by me as Minister.
