Change in clinic times for services at Binnaway Primary and Community Health Centre

Western NSW Local Health District and Coonabarabran Health Service would like to alert the local community to a temporary trial to change the clinic times at Binnaway Primary and Community Health Centre.

Due to a decreasing number of appointments being booked in at the Centre, times at the Centre will now be 9am to 1pm, Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.

These new clinic times are being introduced on a three month trial basis to see if these times and days suit the needs of the local Coonabarabran community.

Primary and community health services available at the Centre include:

  • Community Midwife: provides a smooth transition between hospital and home for new parents and their babies. Maternal checks, infant health checks, mothercraft, breastfeeding and general support is available by phoning (02) 6826 6130
