Public health services key to family violence response
Posted 24 November 2016
VHA CEO Tom Symondson said Victoria’s health services are keen to support the Ending Family Violence plan, launched this morning by the Premier Daniel Andrews.
“Our public health services are central to the successful response to end the scourge of family violence,” Mr Symondson said today.
“Victoria’s public health services look forward to working with the government and other agencies in this significant reform initiative.”
Minister Jennings is coordinating the State Government's response to the Royal Commission into Family Violence which made 227 recommendations, many of which impact the health system.
The VHA is set to meet with the Minister about the role of public hospitals and community health services in family violence services.
“The VHA is strongly advocating for the critical role of the public health system in the delivery of services for women and children affected by family violence,” Mr Symondson said.
He called on the government to ensure public hospitals and community health services are represented in key committees developing reform of family violence services.
