Inquiry into the closure of the Wanniassa Medical Centre

We have prepared a submission to the ACT Legislative Assembly Standing Committee on Health and Disability.

We have sought views from our members and drawn on that input in preparing our submission. Many people contacted us to share their perspective on this issue and we thank you for your support.

Our submission is available on our website (90kb Pdf) and available for you to read. We are interested to hear your feedback on this.

The Terms of Reference for the Inquiry are online. In summary the Committee will consider:
  • the circumstances of the closure;
  • the impact on the residents of the Tuggeranong Valley;
  • the nature of the ACT Government's relationship with privately owned general practice in the ACT; and
  • possible options for the future delivery of GP services in the ACT.
The Canberra Times contributes to publish letters to the Editor on this issue.
