The Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSWLHD) will hold a public briefing on the construction progress of the new Byron Central Hospital at Ewingsdale tomorrow (Wednesday June 3) .

A health district spokesperson said the briefing would provide ‘detailed information about the planning of acute care and community health services from senior members of the development team.’

All residents of the Byron Shire and interested community members are welcome to attend the briefing, which will run for about 90 minutes.

Discussions on the $88 million project, which is due to open in early 2016, will centre around: architectural plans and construction timetables; sustainability; road access and onsite parking; clinical services, including mental health; and the process of relocation from the shire’s two current hospitals, Byron Bay and Mullumbimby.

The meeting will be chaired by Chris Crawford, chief executive of the NNSWLHD, and members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions following the main presentations.

It will be held at Mullumbimby Civic Memorial Hall on Wednesday 3 June 2015 at 5.30pm.

There will also be a Community Information Day on Sunday June 28 from 9am until 1pm at the new hospital site in Ewingsdale Road. The event will enable the local community an opportunity view the building works. Parking will be available on-site and BBQ food can be purchased.
