Tweed Heads GP Super Clinic expected to open by June
CONSTRUCTION has finished on the $7 million Tweed Heads GP Super Clinic.
Richmond MP Justine Elliot inspected the completed clinic at Corporation Cct today, which was expected to be fitted out, staffed and open by June.
"Locals asked for better health services before the last election and I'm pleased this service is closer to reality," Mrs Elliot said.
"The GP Super Clinic will deliver better access for health services in a single, convenient location."
The clinic is expected to take some pressure of health services in the area, with general practitioners, nurses and allied health students manning the posts at the new health centre.
"The GP Super Clinic has received strong community support," Mrs Elliot said.
"This service will help take the pressure off the very busy Tweed hospital, it will deliver better local access to integrated health services."
Mrs Elliot said that the centre was part of her 2010 election commitment and was a component of more than $1.3 billion that she has delivered to local roads, schools, health and community resources.
