Beaufort and Skipton Health Service held their 23rd Annual General meeting in Beaufort recently, drawing considerable attendance by the community.

“I was encouraged by the interest shown from the community and many expressed their support and acknowledgement for the hard work and achievements over the last year”, CEO, Ms. Meryn Pease said.

The meeting used the opportunity to provide updates on the building and refurbishment projects and provided a comprehensive snapshot of the year’s achievements.

Guest speaker was Professor Susan Brumby, the founding Director for the National Centre for Farmer Health. With a help of her power point presentation, Ms. Brumby gave attendees an idea of what is happening in the sector of rural health needs and more importantly, what is needed with the pressures faced by people dealing with such issues as drought.

The meeting also recognised and thanked several staff who achieved long service awards for their outstanding dedication and loyalty to the health service.

Board of Governance Chair, Mr. David Lenehan said, “We are looking forward to 2020 as being a year of growth but also consolidation as we continue to ensure our health service is strong, relevant and most importantly compliant so we can continue to meet the needs of the regions community.
