In reply: The model developed in the Wimmera hospital for clinical quality improvement has formed the basis for quality improvement systems in several regional and tertiary hospitals in Australia. The resources required to implement the model have been costed, and the Victorian Department of Human Services has allocated $4.8 million to establish clinical risk management programs based on the Wimmera model in every Victorian public hospital in 2001–2002.1
