Funding allocated for Holbrook, Culcairn and tumbarumba MPS

The remaining funding allocation in the NSW Half-Yearly Review for the Government’s $300 million strategy to build MultiPurpose
Services (MPS) across rural regional NSW, including the Holbrook, Culcairn and Tumbarumba Multi-purpose Services, was announced today.

Multi-Purpose Services offer opportunities in communities to integrate a range of health services in one facility, including acute care, subacute care (including respite and palliative care), emergency, allied health, oral health, primary health and community services.

Multi-purpose services are much loved by communities because of their approach to delivering the specific care local residents need.

These MPS facilities will provide flexible services to better respond to the health needs of our community and enable more efficient delivery of those services through improved coordination and care.

The Budget Half-Yearly Review confirms the remaining $196.5 million has been allocated to complete the $300 million program.
