North West training decision welcomed

The decision by the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) to continue training at the North West Regional Hospital in 2018 is welcomed.

The Government has worked closely with the ANZCA for this outcome.

It is a decision I never doubted knowing the hardworking staff of the NWRH and the excellent care they provide, and this is also a very welcome outcome for the 2018 trainees with their placements able to proceed.

It is extremely disappointing that Labor sought to make cheap political points and scare people during this process, although I won’t hold my breath waiting for Ms White’s apology.
