As a follow on from last weeks article regarding the Health Survey being conducted in Grenfell by the Monash University Centre of Research Excellence in Rural and Remote Primary Health Care readers are reminded that the survey forms have been distributed throughout the town and villages.
Ex Grenfell health worker Sue Wade is requesting that all the forms be filled out as the findings from this survey will go a long way towards convincing the Federal and State governments that extra funds need to be provided for the upgrade of accessibility to health care in rural and remote areas.
A new poster has now been distributed around town as well for the information of the locals.
Sue is asking residents to complete the questionnaire and return it in the reply-paid envelope. It is emphasized on the poster that doing this will contribute to the planning of better health services for people in rural and remote Australia, especially when it comes to access to doctors which has been – as last week’s article highlighted – a major problem in Grenfell for the last three years.
If anyone would like to know more about this research they are advised that they can contact Dr Bernadette Ward on 03 5440 9064 or 0427 059 205. Sue can also be contacted on 0427 535 123.
