SWSPHN’s CEO, Dr Keith McDonald PhD, and Primary Care Workforce Manager Bianca Lean, joined State Health Minister Ryan Park at the official opening of the Urgent Care Service (UCS) at Gregory Hills this morning (Thursday, 23 May).

The Gregory Hills UCS is a partnership between NSW Health and SWSPHN.

It is one of four urgent care centres in South Western Sydney – with others located at Bankstown, Liverpool and Campbelltown – aiming to take pressure off our region’s busy hospital emergency departments.

Dr McDonald joined Minister Park, South Western Sydney Local Health District Chief Executive Sonia Marshall, Camden MP Sally Quinnell, principal GPs Dr Ben Touma and Dr Atifa Khan, and other staff at My Family Health Medical Centre which is delivering the service, on a tour of the service’s facilities.

They also chatted about the importance of the service to the rapidly expanding and diverse local community.
