Legislative Council Wednesday 3 June, 2020
Ms FORREST question to LEADER of the GOVERNMENT in the LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL, Mrs HISCUTT -
1. With regard to the Independent Inquiry into the Covid-19 outbreak at the NWRH, will the Report of the Independent Panel be made public?
I will await the advice of the Independent Review Panel and to understand any commitment that may be made on the treatment of submissions or evidence gathered as part of the inquiry. However, at this time, I can see no reason why we would not release the recommendations of this report to ensure our continued focus on a culture of learning from major events.
The Government has already released an interim report into the North West outbreak and continues to provide updates on the implementation of the recommendations made through this report; all of which have been accepted.
As has previously been advised, the purpose of the independent inquiry is to learn from the situation and to make any further recommendations for improvement.
