BAIRNSDALE hospital's board have met to consider an independent review into management after a series of problems last year.
In a statement the Bairnsdale Regional Hospital Service board said they would review the report, but would make no comment until they delivered a response in March.
"We hope staff and the community understand that we need time to carefully consider this report and all its recommendations before we announce a response," board president Peter Crick said.
The Weekly Times revealed in December last year the hospital's only two permanent senior doctors resigned leaving junior doctors and local GPs to cover the holiday period.
The resignations sparked calls by local GPs and the community for Bairnsdale Regional Hospital Service chief executive Wayne Sullivan to be sacked.
It was also revealed concerns were raised over junior doctor supervision at Bairnsdale Regional Hospital Service just a week before the resignations.
Figures released by the state government late last year also found Bairnsdale hospital failed to meet two key emergency department performance criteria.
There was also allegations the hospital buried reports of dangerous emergency incidents reports and failed to provide a staff member with support after a blood exposure incident.
The report, which was done by DLA Piper's Heather Wellington, was ordered by the board to investigate issues raised by staff and the community.
The board has made no guaranteed they will fully release the independent report and it's understood they don't plan to give a copy to the Health Minister David Davis or his department.
