The ongoing health concerns raised by the Grantham community were addressed during a special Health Community Clinic today.

Held by the West Moreton Hospital and Health Service, the all-day clinic was set up to specifically address health issues surrounding the 2011 flood event.

West Moreton Hospital and Health Service Chief Executive Lesley Dwyer said the clinic was organised following concerns raised by the community.

"We very much listened to the feedback that we got from the community that they wanted an opportunity to meet face to face with our public health doctors and other professional staff to talk about their health concerns and also about other issues that have arisen since the 2011 floods," she said.

Mrs Dwyer said the clinic would remain open until 7pm tonight.

Anyone who was unable to attend is encouraged to call 13HEALTH.
