Update on Norfolk Island health services

I am pleased to confirm that the New South Wales Government has agreed to a final extension of its delivery of health services on Norfolk Island to the end of 2021.

I thank the NSW Government for the six-month extension which will allow time for a managed and staged transition of health service delivery arrangements under the new, enduring partnership with the Queensland Government announced yesterday.

This also aligns NSW’s health service provision with the previously announced extension of education services on Norfolk Island to the end of 2021.

The Australian Government remains committed to the continuity of critical services for Norfolk Island and achieving the best outcomes for Norfolk Island residents.
