Jun 16, 2022

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole and Minister for Regional Health Bronnie Taylor were in Coffs Harbour today to announce an $883 million package to attract and retain health workers in rural and regional NSW.

The package will target critical and hard to fill roles to ensure the operation of regional health facilities, including nurses and midwives, paramedics, pathologists and scientific staff, pharmacists and allied health professionals, as well as support and ancillary staff.

Despite a busy schedule, the Deputy Premier made time to chat with Coffs Harbour Health Campus General Volunteers about their support for the hospital and the various roles they take on to extend that support to patients and staff.
