Kotvojs: regional radiation treatment for local cancer patients available in Eurobodalla in 2021-22

Dear Beagle Editor,

The Federal Government has honoured all the commitments made in Eden-Monaro at the 2019 election. It is therefore disappointing to see the article in the Beagle (16 May 2021)

reporting otherwise.

Eurobodalla will be receiving funding for delivery of regional radiation treatment for local cancer patients. In 2020, the Federal Government identified Eurobodalla as one of 10 regions to receive funding to deliver regional radiation treatment centres for local cancer patients. Contracts are now being signed for those regions where suitable tenders were received. As the tenders received for some regions, including Eurobodalla did not meet needs, the Department is working to obtain an appropriate agreement to provide services in these regions. It is anticipated that regional radiation treatment for local cancer patients will be available in Eurobodalla in 2021-22.
