A report on recent consultations on future health services for the Wentworth LGA has been released for public review by the Far West Local Health District.
The report was compiled following a series of stakeholder and community consultations held last month in the Wentworth LGA, including public sessions in Wentworth, Dareton and Buronga/Gol Gol.
People were invited to provide feedback on a discussion paper released by the LHD outlining options for better health services in the area. The paper outlined needs, current services and expected changes in population, and framed potential options to focus discussions.
A second round of public consultation sessions will be held for the public to discuss the feedback prior to a report being tabled for the FWLHD Board on the consultation process and response to the discussion paper.
Mr Stuart Riley, Far West LHD Chief Executive, said the follow up public consultations are being held to report back to the communities and check we have captured people’s views.
“We want to ensure and confirm that we have understood people’s views about the future of health services in the Wentworth LGA,” said Mr Riley.
Mr Riley emphasised no decision has been made on the future configuration of health services in Wentworth LGA.
