Dr Di Blankensee, Andrew Armstrong (Architect) and Richmond MP Justine Elliot at the site of the new Tweed Heads South GP Super Clinic.

Richmond MP Justine Elliot yesterday visited the soon-to-be-completed GP Super Clinic located at Corporation Circuit, Tweed Heads South.

The Super Clinic is expected to be opened in May, at a cost of $7 million.

The new clinic will provide services from doctors, nurses and allied health professionals.

It will also have a strong emphasis on education for medical, nursing and allied health students.

‘The GP Super Clinic will deliver better access for health services in a single, convenient location,’ said Ms Elliot.

‘This service will help take the pressure off the very busy Tweed Hospital, it will deliver better local access to integrated health services, and it will provide construction jobs over the coming months.’
