Statement From Lisa Neville

13 February 2021

Late last night I was admitted to hospital as a result of complications associated with a previously diagnosed medical condition.

I have been living with and managing this condition for some time but the complications that have now arisen are serious and require a period of time in hospital for treatment and subsequent respite and recovery. This condition is not COVID-19 related.

At this time my intent is to return to work on Monday 22 February, subject to treatment and medical advice.

During this period of recovery my portfolio responsibilities will be covered through the following acting arrangements:

  • The Hon Richard Wynne MP will be the acting Minister for Water
  • The Hon Martin Foley MP will be the acting Minister for Police and Emergency Services, including oversight of COVID-19 Quarantine Victoria.
