A committee established to help with Rochester and Elmore District Health Service’s takeover of Dingee Bush Nursing Centre held its first meeting recently.
The Transition Advisory Committee is made up of two representatives from REDHS, two from the DBNC board and four elected members of DBNC.
The group plans to meet every two to four weeks until the end of June.
In the Transition Advisory Committee’s terms of reference it states the committee ‘‘is committed to being transparent and will provide regular updates regarding its progress.
‘‘DBNC members, the broader community and organisations are encouraged to contact members of the Transition Advisory Committee should they have any concerns or wish to discuss activities related to the amalgamation’’, it reads.
REDHS chief executive Matt Sharp said he believed the meeting was ‘‘very positive’’.
‘‘I am confident the Transition Advisory Committee will play a very important role throughout the amalgamation process in the coming months,’’ he said.
