Government money wasted in hospitals - Master Cleaners Guild of WA

THE Master Cleaners Guild has branded the Western Australian Government’s move of taking cleaning services at Government hospitals and the Disability Services Commission back in-house as a costly failure.

The guild claims the cost of in-sourcing cleaning services at Fremantle Hospital cost an extra $316,000 in the first year, Disability services faced a $1.6 million higher cost over a four-year term and that Sir Charles Gardiner Hospital was up for an extra $1.8 million over four years.

Master Cleaners Guild executive director Ian Westoby said the documents obtained under Freedom of Information showed, at Fremantle Hospital, that neither a public interest test, an independent financial evaluation nor a value for money evaluation had been done.
