Network replaces health service
THE North Coast Area Health Service (NCAHS) has been replaced by the Northern New South Wales Local Health Network.
Local health networks came about as a result of the New South Wales Government’s support for national health reform.
Christopher Crawford, former chief executive of the North Coast Area Health Service, will remain as chief executive of the Northern New South Wales Local Health Network.
The network encompasses the Tweed Shire and stretches to the Grafton region.
The Northern NSW Local Health Network governing council is chaired by Ms Hazel Bridgett and nine council members.
The next few months will see the structure of the new local health network fully develop.
While the new website is under development, residents can still access information through the NCAHS website.
