This building will allow for all of the services for young people located in Mandurah to be brought together in the new building to help tackle the increasing drugs, alcohol and mental health issues in the Peel region. Andrew Hastie, alongside GP Down South Business Development Manager, Eleanor Britton and various local service providers have worked hard to make this a reality since the by-election in September 2015.
The hub includes at least 60 consulting rooms, two training rooms and five waiting areas along with two reception areas.
The Peel Youth Medical Services Health Hub project is jointly funded by the Federal Coalition Government ($2,000,000), the Western Australian Government ($4,995,000), Lotterywest ($1,870,000), the Peel Health Foundation ($250,000), and Growing Our South Administration Fund ($78,000).
We look forward to keeping you updated on the progress of the build.
