Chittering Council has expressed its disappointment at the sudden temporary suspension of medical services at the Chittering Health Centre.

The Shire Administration was advised late last week that Jupiter Health Services would be closed from today until Saturday 4 February, re-opening on Monday 6 February.

Council understands that during this period the two Doctors are sitting exams, which form part of their accreditation process.Whilst Jupiter Health had notice of the absences they were unable to organise a replacement Doctor, partially due to the exams also affecting services at their other practices (from where locums would normally be sourced).

Following the Shire’s contact today Jupiter Health has advised that they are endeavouring further to make arrangements to supply cover for some of the days during this two week period.

Should there be a partial service available the Shire will share this information via its normal communication channels (website, Chatter, social media and the Post Office noticeboard) along with having the details available at the Shire Administration.

Enquiries should be directed to Ms Robyn Hunt, Regional Manager, at Jupiter Health Services via email r.hunt@jupiterhealthservices.com.au.
