New med­i­cal precinct be­ing planned for Childers

Isis Town and Country - - News -

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.
