Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional New South Wales John Barilaro and Health Minister Brad Hazzard today announced the New South Wales Government is building 8 new one-stop shop health facilities as part of a $100 Million investment in out of hospital care in New South Wales.

Deputy Premier Barilaro said the HealthOne facilities bring together General Practitioners with community health and other health professionals in multidisciplinary teams under the one roof.

“New South Wales Government is delivering on our election promise to provide state-of-the-art health facilities and services for patients both inside and outside of hospital.” Deputy Premier Barilaro said.

“These one-stop shops will not only make seeing doctors and other health professionals easier by bringing services closer to home, but will greatly improve health outcomes in vulnerable communities, particularly in regional and remote areas.”

“These 8 new facilities are in addition to 12 existing projects that fall under the HealthOne Strategy. Together these span across 9 local health districts.” Deputy Premier Barilaro said.

Minister Hazzard said as several of these projects are located outside of metropolitan Sydney, further demonstrating the Government’s commitment to delivering better health care to regional New South Wales.

“We are building brand new HealthOne centres in areas including the Blue Mountains, Northern NSW, Far West NSW, Mid North Coast, Port Stephens and two in the Illawarra, as well as refurbishing many more, greatly enhancing primary health care services for thousands of patients in the regions.” Minister Hazzard said.

Up to $5 Million will also be spent on upgrading information and communications technology and software in Far West NSW, the Mid North Coast, Nepean Blue Mountains, Northern NSW and South West Sydney local health districts.
