The first steps have been undertaken in planning for the future of the Braidwood Multipurpose Service (MPS).
A housing property and land adjoining the MPS in Monkittee Street, Braidwood has been purchased by the NSW Government to consolidate the MPS health site as part of the planning process.
Member for Monaro John Barilaro said in coming months, the Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) would work with Health Infrastructure (HI) to determine the priority services and facilities required to meet the future health needs of the Braidwood community.
HI works with Local Health Districts across metropolitan and regional New South Wales to manage the planning, design, and delivery of health infrastructure capital works.
“The overriding factor in the planning process is to ensure that Braidwood develops its health services to meet the community’s health care needs now and into the future,” said Mr Barilaro.
“The first stage of the redevelopment planning phase is expected to be completed by early next year.
“This planning phase will involve consultations with key stakeholders staff and health service providers about the most effective and innovative options to respond to the needs of the Braidwood region and community.”
The Braidwood MPS project is part of a NSW-wide program of works specifically designed for rural and remote communities, which aims to deliver flexible and integrated health services tailored to meet the community’s unique clinical needs into the future.
