Farewell to Our Western Sites

Following a recent tender process for the medical services contract for Bourke, Brewarrina, Coonamble, Collarenebri and Condobolin, Ochre Health was unsuccessful in retaining the management rights to these services.

This is a huge loss to Ochre Health which started in Bourke in 2002. We have a proud history of service to Western NSW and the departure of these towns will be greatly felt by the Ochre Health team.

RaRMS, an affiliate of the RDN workforce agency was the successful tenderer for all towns. We will be staging our exits from these medical services in December, January and February. Ochre will be handing over both the on-call service and the medical centre operations in each town except for Condobolin where we will continue to operate the Melrose Street Medical Centre.

I would like to personally thank the staff and doctors of Bourke, Brewarrina, Coonamble and Collarenebri for many years of excellent service to their communities as part of the Ochre family. I wish you all well. You will be missed.

You will see a lot of the Western staff at the Ochre weekend and please take the time to wish them all well for the future.
