If you live in rural NSW, you can find the appropriate healthcare with the help of private health cover. A new committee unveiled by state health minister Jillian Skinner also aims to aid healthcare in rural NSW.
Ms Skinner announced the launch of a Ministerial Advisory Committee for Rural Health, which aims to improve the delivery of healthcare and the 'general health' of NSW's rural communities.
The announcement was made at the NSW Rural Health & Research Congress yesterday (November 6).
The committee will consist of rural clinicians, community members and members of local health districts.
Mrs Skinner says that the NSW government understands the issues faced by NSW rural communities are different from those in metropolitan areas, which is the reason why the committee was established.
"The one size fits all approach isn’t always appropriate when delivering health services to rural communities. It’s vital that locals – whether clinicians or community members – are involved when determining local solutions to local problems.
"The Ministerial Advisory Committee will work closely with the parliamentary secretary for Regional Health, Melinda Pavey, to identify methods to improve patient services in rural NSW."
