It was great to see the strong engagement and interest from stakeholders and the broader community in the recent consultations on the 2019 Draft Norfolk Island Health Service Plan (the 2019 Draft Plan).
During their week on island, KPMG met with stakeholders from health and community service providers, community groups and representatives from the Norfolk Island Regional Council.
Community members were provided with opportunities to share their lived experiences accessing health services on island and on the mainland, and their thoughts on the 2019 Draft Plan.
There were discussions on a wide range of issues including aged care, palliative care, and pediatric services and I thank all of you who took the time to meet with KPMG.
The 2019 Draft Plan will inform any future design of a new health facility for Norfolk Island and the community is reminded that you can still provide comments on the 2019 Draft Plan until 31 March 2020.
