VHA, CEOs & Minister get together

Posted 15 February 2017

The Health Minister Jill Hennessy met with the CEOs from some of Victoria's largest health services this week – assuring them of her commitment to quality, safety and other issues.

The VHA CEO Tom Symondson - who facilitated the informal session – said it was always invaluable to have frank and insightful conversations between the Minister and our members.

“The CEOs appreciate the understanding the Minister brings to her all-important portfolio,” Mr Symondson said. “It’s good to be able to have these conversations directly and to have the opportunity to share the lived experience and opportunities on the ground.”
