Community forum about access to doctors
Federal Member for Robertson, Ms Lucy Wicks, has held a Breakfast Community Forum to discuss access to doctors on the Peninsula.
Over 100 people, including residents and medical practitioners registered to attend the forum, which was held on March 17 at Jasmine Green's Park Kiosk at the Umina Recreation Precinct.
"Over the past few weeks, I have heard from many residents who have told me they are concerned about access to doctors on the Peninsula," Ms Wicks said.
Ms Wicks said hard-working Umina GP Dr Ray Martin had admitted it was "past crisis point".
"I took these concerns to Parliament and raised them with Assistant Minister for Health, Dr David Gillespie, and invited him to hear from our community at the forum."
