On Friday 6 October we celebrated the sod turning on the development site of the PYMS Health Hub. Representatives in attendance included GP down south staff and Board, our partner organisations, our funders, Project Managers and builders together with a number of dignitaries: Andrew Hastie, Federal Member for Canning; the Honourable David Templeman Member for Mandurah and Minister for Local Government, Heritage, Culture and the Arts; Robyn Clarke, Member for Murray-Wellington; Zak Kirkup, Member for Dawesville, City of Mandurah Mayor Marina Vergone and Councillor Dave Schumacher. It has been through strong community backing and bi-partisan support from all three levels of government we have achieved full capital funding to build the PYMS Health Hub.
GP down south is an exemplary not-for-profit community organisation. We have been providing health and wellbeing services in the Peel regions and the South West of WA since 1994.
