The Northern NSW Local Health District is seeking applications from community members and healthcare consumers to help shape the planning and design of the $534 million Tweed Valley Hospital, by participating in various planning groups. These groups will consider the experience of patients and their carers, the design of the hospital and its interface with the local community.

They are seeking enthusiastic members of the local community who:

  1. Live in the Tweed-Byron region and are passionate about improving healthcare services for our community;
  2. Have used The Tweed Hospital, Murwillumbah District Hospital, Byron Central Hospital or community health services within the last five years as a patient or carer, or expect to do so in the future; or
  3. Are part of an organised local community or interest group in the Tweed Valley region.

Selected participants will join a panel of community members and healthcare consumers that will be called on to contribute through the various phases of the planning process.
