STATE Member for Lismore Janelle Saffin has welcomed NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard’s announcement today (Wednesday 12 May 2021) that Tenterfield Ambulance Station is in line for a major refurbishment.

“This is great news for Tenterfield Shire residents who rely on their ambulance station for transport and care during medical and day-to-day emergencies, particularly given Tenterfield’s proximity to the Queensland border,” Ms Saffin said.

“I have requested a full briefing on the station upgrade from Minister Hazzard’s office, to get appraised of the detail, but I welcome his announcement under Stage 2 of the NSW Government’s Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR) program.”

In Question Time today, Minister Hazzard confirmed that Tenterfield Ambulance Station would get a major refurbishment.

“And the Member for Lismore (Janelle Saffin) should be happy there is a refurbishment of a station at Tenterfield, which is a particularly significant area, obviously, close to the border,” Mr Hazzard told Parliament.

The NSW Government is investing $232 million to deliver the Rural Ambulance Reconfiguration (RAIR) program under Stages 1 and 2.
