It’s a privilege to chair the government-appointed community committee that is looking at the future expansion of South West Healthcare.
Working through this process of developing a master plan we have become aware of the dramatically increased demand for services in our community. In just the last two years, urgent care services have increased by 32 percent.
With my colleagues (pictured from left) SWH CEO Craig Fraser, SWH Board Vice Chair Russell Worland, myself - Committee Chair James Purcell, Peter’s Project Target $5m Appeal Chair Peter Headen and Community Campaigner Vicki Jellie, we are working to secure the funding required to build the stage two expansion of Warrnambool Base Hospital.
Now we are asking you for your input into the services and improvements you would like to see at the new Warrnambool hospital.
