Graylands Reconfiguration and Forensic Taskforce
As part of the 2019-20 Budget process, $3 million was allocated to the Department of Health to undertake detailed planning for the decommissioning and reconfiguration of mental health services and progression of divestment activities at the Graylands Hospital site.
This planning will be done in collaboration with the Mental Health Commission and the North Metropolitan Health Service. Further planning for the decommissioning and reinvestment of services from Selby Older Adult Hospital is also required.
New services are likely to include a combination of inpatient services, community bed-based services, and community support (accommodation options).
In January 2021, a taskforce of seven public sector leaders was announced to inform the Government's planning and investment decisions regarding the Graylands Hospital site, forensics services and the nearby Selby Older Adult Mental Health Service. This Taskforce will be led by the Minister for Health, with the Minister for Mental Health supporting.
This project is progressing action 45 of the Western Australian Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drug Services Plan 2015-2025 (commence the process of divestment of services on the Graylands and Selby hospital campuses).
