22 January 2016

The Public Service Association (PSA) will be meeting with Southern Mental Health executives on 9 February 2016 about the relocation of Ward 17 at Repatriation General Hospital (RGH) to a new purpose built facility at Glenside Health Services Campus.

The new purpose built facility will incorporate an acute inpatient unit, the Centre for Excellence for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and research spaces.

Southern Adelaide Local Health Network (
SALHN) has advised that the purpose of the meeting is to provide information about the new building design to PSA and other stakeholders. This is the first stage of the consultation for the new building. The building works for the new facility is expected to commence in mid 2016 and be completed in second half of 2017.

SALHN has also advised that a presentation about the concept plan was provided to staff during December 2015 where staff were provided the opportunity to provide feedback.

PSA members are encouraged to contact the PSA regarding any questions or comments on this matter.
