The City of Greater Geraldton is seeking expressions of interest for the provision of GP Services at the Mullewa Medical Centre.
Currently, the Wave n Wattle Group who are providing GP services to the Mullewa community will discontinue their service on 28 October 2015 due to operational reasons.
City of Greater Geraldton Mayor, Ian Carpenter, said although it is not core business of Local Government to provide medical services to residents, the City recognises how critically important GP services are to the town of Mullewa given its distance from Geraldton.
“Historically, the City has subsidised the Mullewa Medical Centre by covering the costs associated with the building, tenancy and maintenance for the doctor’s surgery. This support will continue as the City recognises how vitally important GP services are to the Mullewa community and therefore supports the continuation of the service,” Mayor Carpenter said.
“The City is confident a medical group will step up to provide GP services to the Mullewa community which not only supports growing wheat, beef and lamb industries, it is situated in the very heart of WA’s famous wildflower country.”
Expressions of interest may be submitted via email to Tenders@cgg.wa.gov.au or via post to Tenders, City of Greater Geraldton, PO Box 101 Geraldton WA 6531. The submission deadline is 5.00pm Monday, 21 September 2015. Prospective applicants can obtain specifications and criteria by request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
