NIHRACS is committed to continuing to provide a health service that best meets the needs of the Norfolk Island community. Our support partner after the 31st December will move from South Eastern Sydney Area Health Service to the Metro North Hospital and Health Service in Brisbane.
Since the Heads of Government Agreement was signed last month staff from NSW Health, Qld Health, DITRDC and NIHRACS have been meeting to plan and progress the transition of health services to ensure minimal interruption. A lot of progress has been made so far and NIHRACS is confident that with the help of all our partners, old and new, we will continue to meet the community’s needs.
Medicare card holders will continue to have choice regarding access in other states and territories. NIHRACS will be making contact with some people in the coming weeks to discuss options and ask for agreement to share relevant information with Metro North clinicians and services.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Transition Project Manager Vanessa Bakker on 52163 or Vanessa.Bakker@hospital.gov.nf
