Protest march against proposed West Coast hospital to go ahead
A West Coast community group will hold a protest march against a planned new hospital.
The Buller Health Action Group has called for residents to unite at Westport’s Victoria Square on August 26 to protest the proposed Buller Integrated Family Health Centre (IFHC).
Protesters are to meet about 11.30am before marching to the town clock via Brougham and Palmerston streets. Residents have expressed concerns about the funding arrangements for the IFHC, the design, the proposed location and the remote management of Buller healthcare.
