UPDATE: Below is a record of what appeared on YourSAy during the open consultation process from 15 August 2018 - 16 September 2018. The Repat Consultation Report was released on Tuesday 30 October 2018. The report outlines the services the community identified as priorities for a revitalised Repat Health Precinct, which includes brain, spinal and community rehabilitation, enduring mental health, day surgery procedures and care transition.
The final master plan will be released in early 2019 and will be available for public comment.
Have your say on which health care services you would like to see on the revitalised Repat site in Daw Park.
What is being decided?
You are invited to have your say on which services you think would best support the health system and most benefit the community.
The State Government is committed to reactivating the Repat as a thriving health precinct that delivers on the needs of the community and delivers the best value use of the site in supporting our hospitals and health services.
At the election, the Government committed to re-opening the operating theatres, re-purposing Ward 18 as an older people with mental health issues facility, and re-opening the hydrotherapy pool.
There are assets and space on the site to provide more services and facilities to support the health and wellbeing of the southern community and South Australians more broadly.
We want to ensure that the reactivated Repat site will help us to meet the health needs of the community now and into the future.
We will be working with the community, clinicians and stakeholders to collectively determine the best use for the site.
The Repat site is an important part of South Australia’s health infrastructure and the community will play a vital part in the reactivation of this iconic site.
The first part of the consultation and engagement process was a workshop with key stakeholders. In these discussions, potential facilities, services and strategies for reactivating the Repat were identified. This discussion then informed a second stakeholder workshop where preliminary conceptual options were discussed incorporating these ideas.
SA Health has distilled these ideas and discussions into three concepts with themes based on a number of core health services, as a starting point to prompt discussion and debate about what should be on the Repat site.
The key elements identified in these workshops and structured into the concepts are explained in the Issues Guide.
Watch the Video below which provides a snapshot of the proposed options.
We want to hear from South Australians about which health services could form part of a new health precinct into the future.

- Attending a Let's Talk event where you will engage in a series of in-depth conversations with a group of speakers.

How will your input be used and influence the decision?
Following the consultation, we will collate feedback and responses as we finalise a Master Plan for the site, which is expected to be released by the end of the year.
The unique culture and the spirit of the Repat will be taken into consideration throughout the process of reactivating the Repat site.
The final site design will provide a range of health and related services aimed at supporting our State’s hospitals and health services.
