Residents will soon have access to a weekly immunisation clinic, as Dubbo Regional Council prepares to transfer the service to Western NSW Local Health District (LHD) as of June 30.
Instead of the service only being offered on a monthly basis at Council’s Civic Administration Building, Western NSW LHD’s Child and Family Health clinic rooms will be holding the clinics every week, starting Monday 3 July 2017 from 3pm to 4:30pm.
Having partnered with Western NSW LHD for more than 30 years, Dubbo Regional Council’s Director Community Services, David Dwyer, said the transfer was expected to be warmly welcomed by the community.
“The transfer to Western NSW LHD will greatly benefit the wider community,” Mr Dwyer said.
“The Hawthorn Street clinic will still operate as a free drop in service for all residents, however this will now allow for more flexibility for parents and carers with the clinic open every Monday.”
Mr Dwyer said the final clinic at Dubbo Regional Council will be held on Wednesday 21 June 2017.
