TEMPORARY CHANGE OF OPENING HOURS JERILDERIE MPS EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT

Murrumbidgee Local Health District has advised there will be a temporary change to emergency department hours at Jerilderie Multipurpose Service because of staff shortages from Monday 11 April 2022.

New hours: the ED will be open from 7 am – 10 pm each day.

If you need treatment between 10 pm and 7 am, please go to the Finley Hospital emergency department or call 000 for an ambulance.

If you’re not sure whether to go to emergency, healthdirect Australia is a 24 hour advice line that can help assess how urgent your situation is. Call 1800 022 222.

MLHD is working closely with NSW Ambulance to maintain 24/7 access to emergency care and facilitate rapid transfers to the closest specialist care centre, when required.

If a patient presents to the ED overnight, there's a clear process to assess them and decide the most appropriate course of action so they get the care they need.

MLHD assures the Jerilderie community that restoring the 24 hour emergency department is a priority. These arrangements will be reviewed every month and an update provided to the community on 6 June.

The temporary service changes are in place to ensure the wellbeing of our existing staff, while allowing new staff to be trained, upskilled and supported.
