Gunnedah's Mackellar Rural Health Centre is still closed, and there is no re-opening date in sight yet, either.
Mackellar Care Services chief executive officer Wayne Snelson announced the company's decision to close permanently late October 2019 because it lacked a permanent GP, but only minor developments have been made since then.
Mr Snelson said he hadn't had the chance to speak to the Department of Health, but knew there were negotiations underway with "operators who have expressed interest".
"We're still maintaining the building and we'd like to see someone in there as quickly as possible," Mr Snelson said.
Parkes MP Mark Coulton said he was staying in-the-loop for updates.
"I am advised that the interested parties have also had discussions with the Department [of Health] with regard to how the grant process will work for their proposals, and a formal approach is currently being prepared by an interested operator," Mr Coulton said.
"The commonwealth has also been approached by two other interested parties to use the facility in conjunction with the interested operator and is currently in discussions with them. The details of these two interested parties have been provided to the interested operator."
Health care is a huge priority for me for Gunnedah and we'll do whatever we can to help support the health services in Gunnedah.Tamworth MP Kevin Anderson
Mr Coulton is working "to achieve a positive outcome" alongside Tamworth MP Kevin Anderson.
Mr Anderson said while the health centre was a federal government building, he was offering all he could to Mr Coulton.
"Anytime a health service gets removed or is lost to the Gunnedah community, or any community for that matter, it is of great concern, so I'm offering all I can to Mr Coulton and the [federal] government to help resume services from that building," he said.
