The Mid-Western community is invited to attend a public meeting being held next Monday to discuss the long-awaited redevelopment of the Mudgee Hospital.
Member for Dubbo Troy Grant and NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard will visit Mudgee to attend the meeting and hear from health staff and the local community.
The Mudgee Hospital was one of the big winners in this year’s state budget after being allocated $10.2 million for the redevelopment project. This is to be added to the $60 million that had already been promised, bringing the total amount of state funding to $70.2 million.
It’s expected that $8 million will be spent on the project this financial year, with construction set to get underway in mid-2018.
The local community and health staff have raised a number of health care issues that they would like to see rectified in the hospital redevelopment.
According to the Mudgee Guardian, issues that have been raised include improving outpatient treatments, increasing the number of hospital beds, increasing maternity services, making the emergency department accessible at all hours, community health services and aged care services.
If you’re interested in hearing about the redevelopment and sharing your thoughts, visit the Club Mudgee Auditorium from 9:30am to 10:30am on Monday, August 14.
