MP hopeful that doctor shortage is lessening
Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch is hopeful that the doctor shortage on the Peninsula is turning the corner.
With development applications for facilities for medical centres in Umina and a new doctors' clinic a few doors down from her office, Ms Tesch said she was thankful that "residents will finally be able to see a GP".
"The Peninsula has suffered with a doctor shortage for years, with an aging population being turned away constantly from crucial medical services.
"For years I have experienced and heard of others experiences with trying to find a doctor on the Peninsula, even for the most basic care."
"The calls of many Peninsula locals have finally been answered by these new GPs and I cannot wait for locals to get improved access to doctors."
Ms Tesch said she was thankful that new doctors, such those near her, were providing more services on the Peninsula.
"I am so incredibly delighted to welcome Perfect Medical Care to the community and thank them so much for bulk billing and ensuring we have better access for everyone in our community.
"I have heard so many times about the people who are struggling to find a GP on the Peninsula and finding the care they need."
