Investigations into complaints at Charleville Hospital

THE CRIME and Corruption Commission and the Office of the Health Ombudsman are investigating complaints relating to Charleville Hospital. 

South West Hospital and Health Service board chair Lindsay Godfrey confirmed there were two separate investigations underway - with a non-clinical matter being looked into by an external investigator and clinical matters under investigation from the Ombudsman.  

"An independent external investigator has been appointed to examine the non-clinical complaints and submit a report," Mr Godfrey said.

"The South West Health Board and the health service are cooperating fully with the Office of the Health Ombudsman and the independent investigator."

However Mr Godfrey declined to comment on the matter further. 

"As these matters are under current formal investigation, we are unable to provide any detail or offer any further comment," he said.
