Member for Maitland Robyn Parker today welcomed news that community members will be invited to participate in a forum about the new Maitland Hospital development.

Ms Parker said the forum, to be held on Wednesday 12 March, will give the community an opportunity to learn more about the development and be involved in the planning process.

“The NSW Liberals & Nationals made a commitment to the people of Maitland and the wider Hunter Valley that we would plan a new hospital for this region,” Ms Parker said.

“We are delivering on this commitment and now the community has an opportunity to participate, ask questions and have their voice heard.

“I encourage all interested members of the community to come along to the forum, learn more about the development and get involved in the future of their health services.”

Hunter New England Local Health District and Health Infrastructure will make presentations at the forum and take questions from the public.

“The Local Health District and Health Infrastructure will take the floor to update us on what has been achieved, where they are at in the planning phase and what the next steps are,” Ms Parker said.

“This will be an informative gathering for those wanting to know more about the development, its proposed clinical services and the broader site planning.”

The new Maitland Hospital community forum will be held at 6.30pm, Wednesday 12 March at the Maitland Golf Club (also known as East’s Leisure and Golf), Tenambit Street (off Raymond Terrace Road) at East Maitland.
