MR HANSON (Molonglo) (4.34): I move:

That this Assembly:

(1) notes:

(a) that on 15 November 2012 the Minister for Health commissioned a review into maternity services at the Centenary Hospital due to concerns women are being pressured to leave just six hours after giving birth;

(b) that the announcement of this review follows:

(ii) warnings from doctors that capacity issues at the hospital may compromise patient safety;

(iii) construction delays of approximately 18 months to date with the hospital yet to be completed;

(iv) cost blow outs in the hospital of $20 million to date;
