Mt Gambier doctors have 6 month extension to contract

Mt Gambier doctors, Mr McCuster and Mr Forbes future at the Mt Gambier Hospital has been the subject of negotiations with Country Health SA in recent weeks and today CHSA Regional Director South East Jayne Downs said both doctors will continue their services at the hospital for a further six months under their existing conditions.

Ms Downs said, Country Health SA has today provided both surgeons with documents to finalise this six-month contract extension while an Expression Of Interest (EOI) process is under way for orthopaedic surgery and emergency on call services at Mount Gambier Hospital.

 This arrangement means there will be no interruption to orthopaedic surgery and services will continue as normal during this period.
