More money for health services in Yagoona

Local health services in Yagoona will benefit from expanded facilities as a result of a $150,000 infrastructure boost from the Gillard Government.

Member for Blaxland Jason Clare today visited Powell St Medical Practice in Yagoona, which have been awarded a $150,000 grant to expand their services to treat more patients.


“This is great news for Powell St Medical Practice. This grant will help them see more patients and extend the level of service they provide,” said Mr Clare.

“The practice wants to extend their premises next door and increase the chronic health services they provide.

“This will be a great boost to local health care services.”

Dr Olataga Alofivae-Doorbinnia said: “This is really exciting for our practice and our patients.”

“We’ll be able to expand our facilities and deliver more services to Yagoona,” said practice manager Kamal Doorbinnia.

“This is all about making sure people are able to see a doctor when they need it,” said Mr Clare.
