Patient / Client Access to Cross Border Health Care
Tuesday, 7 July 2020 / Albury Wodonga Health
Albury Wodonga Health provides critical health care to the border community and is working closely with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), the New South Wales Ministry of Health and New South Wales Police to ensure appropriate access for patients is maintained.
Patients who have appointments scheduled with Albury Wodonga Health are being issued with authorised letters from the health service to assist with travel between the two cities.
This documentation can be used, along with any other supporting material to enable passage across the New South Wales and Victorian borders, until the travel exemption permit system is up and running via Services NSW.
The issuing of letters is underway and is being prioritised based on the date of the scheduled appointment and we thank the community for their patience during this time.
