Please note that our programs and services are cancelled on Code Red fire danger rating days.

We are calling on our local community to support us in requesting funding from the State Government to ensure community health does not lose any more local services. If you are concerned, like us, about the reduction in local services and demise of CHIRP, please contact the Minister for Health, Ms Jenny Mikakos at jenny.mikakos@parliament.vic.gov.au  or phone (03) 9096 8561. If you would like assistance doing this or want to discuss this situation with us, please contact us by phone or via the email saveCHIRP@cdch.com.au



Castlemaine District Community Health has experienced an outage of a number of IT systems.

We have commenced a recovery process utilising our paper-based records and systems as we rectify the problem.

A number of phone lines have also been affected so we ask for your patience during this period.

Client care and safety has not been compromised.

Anyone booked to attend the Endocrinology Clinics or First Aid courses should contact CDCH either by dropping in to the service or calling us on reception on 5479 1000
