PUBLIC MEETING SUNDAY 26TH FEBRUARY AT 2 PM AT MONA VALE HALL
Please attend the Public Meeting that has been called by Robert Dunn, on SUNDAY at 2 PM at the Mona Vale Hall.
Robert, and a number of Pittwater residents are saying, we believe, - the hospital must be at Mona Vale! - an alternative should not be considered.
Whilst we agree that the ideal site for a Level 5 hospital is Mona Vale, we know that the Dept of Health has rejected the possibility that the Hospital would be built at the Mona Vale site.
The LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL GENERAL PURPOSE STANDING COMMITTEE NO. 2
Government Response to the Inquiry into the Operation of Mona Vale Hospital
'Neither of the existing hospitals (Manly and Mona Vale) is considered to be located on a site appropriate to draw a large enough catchment population to support sustainable Level 5 services'
So, Mona Vale is out!
It is no secret that Frenchs Forest is the Govt's preferred site, unless it sees the Narrabeen/Warriewood site as a better one. Presently it is conducting all the same analyses as the other sites.
Without a viable alternative, the hospital will go to the Frenchs Forest site, a location that is unacceptable to the Offshore communities.
We calculate that it would take between 1 and 2 hours to get to this site (private or Public transport).
Please see attached Submission to the Council from SIRA for more details (Click here).
So, we need Offshore people to attend this Public Meeting to put our points, and to support a Level 5 Hospital at the alternative Narrabeen/Warriewood site, as set down in the Council's submission.
This would result in meeting the Dept's Standard - '20 kms or 30 minutes'
COUNCIL MEETING MONDAY 27TH FEBRUARY AT 6.30 PM
It will also be important to attend the Council Meeting on Mon at 6.30 pm where, we understand, the Proposal will be debated. SIRA President Shar Jones plans to register to address Council, along with a representative from WPCA.
If you believe that it is important to have a Level 5 Hospital within that '20 kms or 30 minutes' range, then attend these meetings.
Any questions, ring Greg Roberts (9979 9599), or Email firstname.lastname@example.org ), who sits on the Save Mona Vale Hospital committee as an offshore resident.
