New Health Service Set for Lightning Ridge

Lightning Ridge residents can look forward to a new health facility under the NSW Government’s $304 million Multipurpose Service program.

The expanded facility will include a new building adjacent to the current MPS and will better meet the needs people living in and around Lightning Ridge by improving patient’s experience, and supporting existing health services.

In addition to the existing MPS services including a Level 1 emergency department service, 24 hour on call general practitioner (GP) services, acute care beds and aged care residential beds, the expanded Lightning Ridge MPS will deliver:
  • improved collaboration between services for patients with complex healthcare needs
  • improved Integration with the existing services at Lightning Ridge Health Service, Far West Division of General Practice and visiting specialist services
  • more space and amenities for the community health team, Far West Medicare Local clinicians and for visiting specialist and allied health services
  • a venue for Lightning Ridge to attract new services or activities.
There will be no interruption to the current health service while the new facility is under construction.
