Community Consultation Shapes The Future Of Eurobodalla Health Service


The Eurobodalla community has had its say on the future of their health services following a period of extensive consultation with residents, clinicians and health staff. On 13 October 2017, Health Minister Brad Hazzard and Member for Bega Andrew Constance announced a commitment to update the Eurobodalla Health Service Clinical Services Plan (CSP) through a review of local health services. Eurobodalla Health Service General Manager Lisa Kennedy said feedback from the consultation was critical to ensuring patient safety remained a top priority. “The consultation identified clinical and service requirements that will ensure we can continue to meet the health needs of Eurobodalla residents into the future,” Ms Kennedy said. “The community are the focus of the health service, so it’s important to us that they support the direction of the CSP. “I thank everyone who provided feedback, including Eurobodalla residents, who showed strong interest in the proposed CSP,” Ms Kennedy said. Common themes identified from the consultations include:  access to specialist services closer to home  orthopaedic services in Eurobodalla  integration of local services  local availability of intensive care  inclusive services  a single central service The community consultation sessions were conducted by Chair of the Community Representative Committee Brad Rossiter throughout Eurobodalla, Southern NSW Local Health District and the Primary Health Network. Surveys were also conducted face-to-face and distributed electronically and in print. Consultation will continue throughout the various phases of the project and the community is encouraged to have their say about the public health service and facilities in Eurobodalla via SNSWLHD-Redevelopments@health.nsw.gov.au.
