The renewed level of interest in the progress over the proposed redevelopment of the Forbes Hospital and construction of the Parkes Hospital since the recent Local Government elections bodes well for the future of each project, the Member for Dubbo Troy Grant said today.

Mr Grant said the level of support displayed by both Forbes and Parkes Council's for the upgrade of facilities demonstrates the community's desire for better targeted health services in the Lachlan region.

Western NSW Local Health District (LHD) representatives met with the Mayors of Forbes and Parkes recently to be briefed on progress with these projects.

"Now that Cr Ron Penny and Cr Ken Keith have had the opportunity to discuss the future of each hospital with the local health district and have a clearer understanding of the potential and possibilities for each site, the community can look forward to receiving regular updates on its progress," said Mr Grant.

"Council support for both hospital upgrades is a crucial element in spreading the word among residents of the benefits each community will derive from the health services provided.

“It’s great to see Western NSW LHD working with the community to keep them informed and involved in the Forbes and Parkes Hospital projects.

"While there is still much work to be done before each project reaches completion, with the level of co-operation demonstrated I am confident that every effort will be made to ensure these vital facilities are delivered on schedule."
