Dear FOI Team,

Thank you for your response.

Thank you for making me aware you will send across Pathology and Order Communications when you have the information.

Just wanted to clarify a couple of things please. See below.

Cardiology – do you have a go live date for the new Apollo system that will replace your current system?

E-rostering (staffing) – your contract is expiring soon. Do you plan to renew this contract? If so, could I please have the new expiry date?

Thank you for your time in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Miss G Kovacs
