Mental health revamp taking shape

THE Warwick Hospital's Specialist Clinic is beginning to take shape, with the building refurbishments well under way.

The mental health department development began 12 months ago but was put on hold after the initial stages were complete due to financial pressures.

But in January this year, the Warwick RSL donated a cheque for $120,000 and the construction could recommence.

Director of Nursing Megan O'Shannessy said it was good to see the developments coming together.

"The consultation rooms are done, just need to do the staff offices," she said.

Ms O'Shannessy said the construction should be completed in six to eight weeks.

Warwick RSL president Mavis Cooper said the RSL was more than thrilled to be able to lend a helping hand.

"We wanted the funds to go to something that would help the community as a whole and we feel this project is very worthy," she said.
