Fact Sheet 3 - New $10M Community Health Centre

This is the text of Fact Sheet 3 released on 30 August 2006 by the RWA.

The RWA has brokered an agreement with the Health and Attorney Generals Departments and NSW Police to establish a new $10 million Community Health Centre, by adaptive reuse and refurbishment of the former Redfern Court House and Police Station site.

Construction is expected to commence in 2007 and is due for completion in late 2008. The new Centre will be primarily funded through the sale of the surplus Rachel Forster Hospital site.

The current community health centre at the former Hospital site is outdated and will be relocated to the new Centre in Redfern Street.

The Sydney South West Area Health Service will withdraw the Development Application for the proposed community health facility at Lawson Street, Redfern.

Services to be provided from the new Community Health Centre (CHC):

In accordance with community requests throughout the development of the RWA’s Human Services Plan, a number of health services will be provided in a ‘one-stop-shop’ approach from the new Redfern CHC.

The range of services is proposed to include: health assessments, health education, early childhood and family support services, counselling, referral, perinatal and family drug health services, mental health services, rehabilitation, welfare support, screening for HIV/AIDS and hepatitis, sexual health services and other community health services.
