The Information Day will be held in the grounds of the Evans Head Community Health Centre on Thursday, 8 November 2018 from 4pm to 7pm.
Acting Chief Executive of the Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSWLHD) Lynne Weir said the Information Day would provide a range of information on the new HealthOne facility.
“Progress is underway to construct the new HealthOne on the current Community Health Centre site and we will have concept plans of the facility on display,” Ms Weir said.
“I invite the community to come and find out about the range of services that we will be providing at the new facility.
“Having a modern and contemporary health facility will mean that we are able to introduce additional health services in Evans Head.”
The NSW Government announced a new state-of-the-art HealthOne for Evans Head late last year, as part of the $100 million statewide HealthOne program.
The new HealthOne will accommodate:
- Chronic diseases management and lifestyle groups
- Cardiac rehab and respiratory groups
- Child and family therapy groups including speech pathology, physiotherapy and occupational therapy
- Dietetics and diabetes education services.
“The current Community Health Centre is not equipped to provide these modern health services, and we are currently at capacity in the old building,” Ms Weir said.
“We are looking forward to being able to offer these tailored services on site, thanks to the clinical rooms, gymnasium and treatment spaces planned for the new HealthOne facility.
The current site is ideally located close to existing GP services which will link into the services provided by HealthOne, and there is space on site for much needed car parking.
