■ The Kar­ratha com­mu­nity will get their say on the de­vel­op­ment of the new Health Cam­pus ac­cord­ing to WA Coun­try Health Ser­vice.

WACHS told Pil­bara News in Septem­ber they had an­tic­i­pated the first meet­ing of a com­mu­nity ref­er­ence group would be held in Oc­to­ber, how­ever, this did not come to pass.

WACHS op­er­a­tions West Pil­bara man­ager Mathew Raven­scroft said they hoped to an­nounce the for­ma­tion of the Kar­ratha Health Cam­pus Com­mu­nity Ref­er­ence Group this month.

“It is en­vis­aged that the Com­mu­nity Ref­er­ence Group will in­clude key stake­holder and com­mu­nity rep­re­sen­ta­tives,” he said.

“The group will en­sure the com­mu­nity is kept fully in­formed about the de­vel­op­ment of the new cam­pus and pro­vide an ideal fo­rum for two-way com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween the com­mu­nity and the health ser­vice.

“The feed­back and in­put pro­vided via this fo­rum will as­sist the project to meet lo­cal com­mu­nity needs as well as ex­plain the progress of the project.”

Last week it was re­vealed a new men­tal health fa­cil­ity would not be in­cor­po­rated into the cam­pus.
