I welcome today’s announcement that Calvary Private Hospitals and Medibank have finalised an agreement ahead of their August 31 deadline.

Patients should always be the number one focus in negotiations between hospitals and health insurers.

Hopefully this means business as usual on Monday for everyone involved, including patients.

The Federal Government remains committed to fast-tracking a list of high-risk complications currently being developed by the national hospital safety regulator to improve hospital processes and patient welfare.

Further updates will be provided in the coming months.
