Metro South Health is committed to delivering the best possible services within the catchment it serves and values your input. The purpose of public enagement via the MSH Consultation Hub was to seek feedback on the DRAFT Metro South Health Maternity and Neonatal Health Service Plan to ensure that our health services meet the current and future needs of our population.
28 respondents provided feedback via the online consultation hub, while written feedback via email was received by a further 5 respondents. Overall, the responses to the health service plan were positive with over 60% agreeing that the strategies and actions match the needs of pregnant women in Metro South.
25% of online respondents disagreed with this statement. Negative responses centred on the need to raise the priority of facility upgrades, some issues not being discussed extensively enough in the plan, the need for resourcing to implement actions, the need for clarification of certain statements and additional data and a perception that the plan was not broad enough in addressing specific needs of certain population groups and certain facilities within Metro South.
