The meeting will be attended by Goulburn Health Service general manager Dennis Thomas and Southern NSW Health community engagement manager Renata Sheehan, as well as members of the Gunning District Community and Health Service.

Questions will be taken on notice by email so that all important issues will be addressed.

"Please send us a message with your question and we will call on as many people as we can on the night to address the meeting," Gavin Douglas said.

Questions can be emailed to: gunning.meeting@outlook.com.

The bulk of the evening will be dedicated to the Child and Family Nurse Service, however, Southern NSW Health have suggested this would be a good time to talk about any health issues that affect the community.

"Additionally, we understand this time is not ideal for everyone and that there are other meetings on that night, however, it is the best time we could get from Southern NSW Health in the next few weeks given the Easter and Anzac Day public holidays," a Facebook post on the Gunning Community Announcements and Events read. 

The meeting will be held at Gunning courtroom on April 17 at 7.30pm.
