VICTORIA’S Deputy Premier James Merlino has stressed the Sunraysia community should have the final say on the future of Mildura Base Hospital.

Responding to a question from Member for Mildura Ali Cupper in parliament this week, Mr Merlino said the government had “listened and we will make a decision on the future of Mildura Base Hospital and whether to return it to public hands in the coming weeks”.

“The Minister for Health (Jenny Mikakos) had a very successful visit to Mildura last week in order to listen to the views of local nurses, doctors and patients, Ramsay Health Care and the wider community,” he said.
