Planned closure of Jerramungup nursing post. I believe you are leaving a community with no health care for 12 whole days over the busy Christmas period. It seems to me the roads are busy, farmers are still harvesting, many St John’s Volunteers are away. I understand another town, which is over 100 to 150kms away from the main areas of the shire and not centrally located or near any of the major highways that intersect the shire, gets an on call nurse all this time and it seems to me we get nothing. There is no ED close by, so I feel we are basically left unattended.
This is unacceptable in my view, to leave a community with seemingly no health care for 12 whole days. I believe health direct will just say go to your nearest ED. There is also no point in driving to the other town, which I feel is not centrally located, to be then told no, go to Albany, as the other town is down a one way road. In my opinion, this situation is untenable. I believe there are many young children in town including newborn babies
