Planning and design is underway with community feedback being considered ahead of further consultation with health professionals and the community planned for this year.

“It’s vitally important this new facility is staffed with the right number of doctors, nurses, alliedhealth staff from the beginning, we’ll be integrating key worker accommodation and child care to support our highly skilled workforce in the years to come.”
