Health care services in the Yass Valley are to be further examined as the Local Health District investigates the birthing needs of local women.

 

The commitment to boost the planning process follows a meeting last week, attended by Health Minister, Brad Hazzard, local member, Wendy Tuckerman, Yass Valley councillor, Jasmin Jones and health district officers.

 

District Acting Chief Executive, Jude Constable says a stepped approach will be used to look at the antenatal and postnatal needs of Yass district women.

 

There would be consultation with the local community as well as an evidence based approach to inform future planning of maternity services.

 

Ms Constable says an appropriate model of care would take into consideration such things as service quality, safety, sustainability, equity and access.

 

Recommendations will be made in early 2020 and these will inform models of care for local maternity needs in the Yass Valley.
