A public meeting has been called to allow the region’s top health bureaucrat to explain his proposal to replace night-shift doctors at Mullumbimby hospital emergency department (ED) with video-linking technology.
Chris Crawford, the chief executive of the Northern NSW Local Health District, will be available to answer questions, and the meeting will be held at the Mullumbimby High School hall on 2 August from 7pm.
Frank Lynch from the Save Mullum Hospital Steering Committee told Echonetdaily, ‘As this is the first community meeting attended by a representative of the Local Health District administration, it is an important meeting for residents and all are urged to attend and to have their concerns heard’.
Mr Lynch says the committee is collecting and collating personal experiences about Mullum hospital’s ED compared with other EDs.
‘Please submit any such experiences to [email protected], leave a note in the submissions box at Mullumbimby Newsagency or contact me on 6684 0242. And please come along to the meeting on 2 August.’
