OPSEU has brought a court application seeking a Judicial Review of the Central East LHIN's process in approving the RVHS Deficit Elimination Plan, which includes the consolidation of mental health beds at Centenary. OPSEU has also served RVHS with a Notice of Motion seeking an injunction restraining it from implementing the mental health bed consolidation until the application is determined by the Court. In these circumstances, our legal counsel has advised that:
1. We should not discuss this matter publicly, while it is before the courts; and
2. We should not commence implementation until the legal matter is resolved.
We will keep you posted as to updates on this matter.
