Thousands to benefit from expansion of Illawarra after hours health care service
More than 20,000 people from across the Kiama LGA will be able to access the Radio Doctor Illawarra after hours home doctor service, thanks to funding from Illawarra-Shoalhaven Medicare Local.
According to Dianne Kitcher, Chief Executive Officer of Illawarra-Shoalhaven Medicare Local, the expansion is a significant announcement for the local community.
"There has long been a need to increase access to an after hours service for Kiama residents and in turn, ease the pressure on local hospitals and GPs," Ms Kitcher said.
"We are delighted to be able to facilitate the expansion into the area and continue to support the great work that Radio Doctor has been doing in providing critical after hours health care to Illawarra residents for more than 40 years."
For after hours home doctor visits call Radio Doctor Illawarra on 4228 5522.Continue Reading
