BLAYNEY MPS SET FOR MAJOR REDEVELOPMENT

Bathurst MP Paul Toole has today announced the Blayney Multipurpose Service (MPS) will undergo a major redevelopment.


He said the redevelopment will support the on-going needs of the Blayney community and is being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $297 million Multipurpose Service Program to deliver health facilities across rural and remote NSW.


A team has been engaged to undertake the project’s planning and design, including:

o APP Corporation as the project manager - AAP have recent experience working on the MPS Program including the delivery of the Lightning Ridge, Cobar, Molong, Coolah, Rylstone and Murrurundi projects.

o NBRS Architecture as the architect - NBRS have recent experience on the Hay MPS, and other health projects including the Dapto and Buronga HealthOne projects.

Mr Toole said the scope of the Blayney MPS redevelopment will be identified through the planning phase.


“The aim of this is to determine the most suitable outcome that best meets the needs of the Blayney community,” he said.


“The project team, alongside Health Infrastructure, Ministry of Health and Western NSW Local Health District will consider a range of options through the master planning process.”


Combining information from the Clinical Services Plan, master plan and concept design, a project brief will be developed to outline the redevelopment’s scope and program.


“There will be opportunities for the community to have input on shaping the redevelopment throughout the planning and design process for the project, and the community will continue to be updated,” Mr Toole said.


Planning will commence in the coming months.
