GUYRA now has a bigger and better medical centre to meet the growing needs of the community, thanks to the hard work and commitment of locals, Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall said today while officially opening the $260,000 major expansion.

The medical centre is attached to the Guyra MPS and provides a daily GP service to the community.

Mr Marshall and was joined by Hunter New England Health’s Executive Director Rural and Regional Health Services Susan Heyman and representatives of the Rotary Club of Guyra at the opening of the project, which was jointly funded by the community and the NSW Government.

“This is a terrific upgrade of Guyra’s Health Service, which will help the facility build capacity well into the future,” Mr Marshall said. “The fact this project has been partly funded and driven by the community makes today an even stronger victory for locals.

“The Guyra Rotary Club has raised $40,000 toward these upgrades, which will provide extra space to accommodate the town’s growing population and increased visitation of the service.

“The upgrade has extended the waiting room to make it more comfortable and spacious for patients. A new consultation room will allow new allied health professionals like psychologists or occupational therapists.

“I’d like to thank each and every member of the local community who has donated money, as well as the incredible work by Guyra Rotary Club to make this terrific project a reality.”

The NSW Government contributed around $220,000 to the project.
