Brunswick Valley community and Mullumbimby residents were given assurances in 2015 by the then-Minister for Health Jillian Skinner that they would be consulted about the future of the Mullumbimby and District Memorial hospital site; but this never took place, says Greens MP for Ballina Tamara Smith.

“Yesterday we were told we have 28 days to cobble a plan together, the NSW government doesn’t seem to realise that community consultation takes time,” says Ms Smith.
