New Royal Adelaide Hospital (NRAH) Outpatient Imaging – Ministerial Statement

20 October 2017

The Minister for Health, the Hon. Peter Malinauskas MLC, made a ministerial statement about the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) outpatient medical imaging services on Tuesday 17 October 2017.

The ministerial statement informed the Legislative Council that the government will keep the provision of outpatient medical imaging at the RAH in-house, rather than enter into a contract with an external provider.

This is a great victory for PSA members who contributed strongly to the decision-making process. Members provided comprehensive information to SA Health that compared in-house and external provision and highlighted to government the risks of privatising versus the quality of service and overall benefits that would be retained for the community by keeping the service in-house.

Congratulations again to PSA members for their diligence and persistence in gaining a great outcome for each other and SA communities.

Staff who are not currently PSA members are invited to celebrate this outcome with us and to join the PSA to further strengthen our influence.
