New medical precinct being planned for Childers

PLANS are under way to create a new medical precinct in the centre of Childers.

The focus is on best possible patient care.

A priority will be placed on car parking and access in and out of the centre for patients.

It is also hoped that having a modern facility will attract and retain additional medical practitioners to the district while considering the heritage feel of the town.

The building will be at least 500sq m and provide state-of-the-art consulting rooms and best practice in latest architectural design for both patient, professional and community outcomes.

The centre will be large enough for a doctor surgery, chemist, pathology, physiotherapy and specialists.

It is hoped to provide a home for any missing services in the district such as a full-time physiotherapist.
