Pottsville welcomes news on health centre



POTTSVILLE residents can look forward to easily accessible health care after the NSW government confirmed its commitment to the establishment of a Pottsville Community Health Centre yesterday.

Parliamentary secretary Neville Newell was on hand to announce the start of planning, and invited the community to help with project consultation.

The Health Centre services could range from community nursing, diabetes education, aboriginal health, child and family support services, among others, depending on community consultation.

Pottsville Community Association president Len Greer said the announcement is "wonderful news; we'd be looking to establish base services which we can establish from the survey".

"We're obviously committed to taking this right through as we did in Kingscliff, and it is getting under way," Mr Newell told the meeting.
