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.
