LETTER: Stand united

SIR, – We write as very concerned citizens of the proposed amalgamation of the Wimmera Health Care Group and Ballarat Health Services. 

Wimmera Health Care Group is an important provider of health services to Horsham and the wider Wimmera community. 

We feel there has been a lack of communication and consultation regarding this proposal and call on WHCG board to extend the community consultation period to allow the Wimmera community to have its say on the future of this vital service.  

We are also calling on our community across the Wimmera, whether they be local governments, businesses and associations, hospital-support groups, service clubs,  sporting groups, churches and so on to write to the WHCG board about their concerns. Submissions can be made by writing to Partnership Proposal, Wimmera Health Care Group, 83 Baillie Street, Horsham, 3400, or email 

Article continues below

Action is required now before it is too late to give up one of our most vital services for us living in the Wimmera.

Hugh Delahunty, Rhonda Tursi,
David Johns, Horsham
