Norfolk Island Multipurpose Health Services Facility Project

The Norfolk Island Multipurpose Health Services Facility Project was established to develop the Initial and Detailed Business Cases which will lead to the Australian Government’s approval to provide funding for a new Multipurpose Health Services Facility for the Island. The department has engaged KPMG to assist with the project. The first step KPMG is undertaking is a review of the 2015 Norfolk Island Health Service Plan.

The Norfolk Island Health Services Public Discussion Paper provides information for the Norfolk Island community to inform discussions on the types of health and aged care services that may be needed in the future.

Details on how to provide feedback can be found on page 18 of the discussion paper, and a community feedback form and discussion questions can be found on pages 19 to 22.

Progress to date

Stage 1 of the on-Island consultation was completed in December 2018.

Stage 2 of the on Island consultations was completed in February 2019.

If you were unable to attend one of the consultation sessions please complete the Community Feedback Form in the Discussion paper and return it to: territories_projects@infrastructure.gov.au or PO Box 201, Norfolk Island 2899 by 21 February 2019.

All submissions will be treated in confidence to ensure that privacy is respected. Personal information is not being sought as part of your submission, although any received will be collected in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988.

Upcoming activities

The next opportunity for public input will be when the draft health services plan is released for public consultation.
