Rural Communities Project
Our Rural Communities Project is focused on the unique health issues facing the Tenterfield and Glen Innes communities (and villages in each local government area).
A steering committee with members representing the Rural Doctors Network, Primary Health Network Board and Community Advisory Committees and Hunter New England Local Health District oversee the project.
Following a health needs assessment it was decided employ a Community Innovation Coordinator. Kelly Foran was recruited to role and currently works to to identify gaps in local health services, to improve communication between services and the community and to work closely with community members to achieve this.
