Are you passionate about the future of healthcare in western Sydney?

We’re looking for community members and health providers who live and work in the local community to take part in discussions around how services will be delivered in the new Rouse Hill Hospital.

Western Sydney Local Health District chief executive Graeme Loy is encouraging people of all ages and backgrounds to have their voice heard at consultations in August and September.

“This is a unique opportunity to help shape how we will deliver the very best healthcare in your neighbourhood for decades to come,” Mr Loy said.

“We want to hear from you about how Rouse Hill Hospital can best meet your needs, and the needs of your community.”
