A RE-ELECTED Liberal Government would commit $4.9 million to support the development of the Peel Youth Medical Service (PYMS) Health Hub.

The PYMS Health Hub received a commitment of $2 million from the Federal Government last year as well as support from the City of Mandurah.

Mental Health Minister Andrea Mitchell said in Mandurah the project would bring together health and well being service providers to deliver services specifically and directly to young people in the Peel region.

“The Health Hub will effectively be a one-stop shop for young people seeking a variety of health services, and by bringing the services together in the one location, the health providers will be able to ensure more effective planning and delivery of services,” she said.

“While there will be benefits by way of more effective delivery of services and improved efficiencies, the primary aim of this funding is to improve the health outcomes of young people living in the community.”
