THE Northern NSW Local Health District (LHD) has kept its word by scrapping a proposal to replace a doctor late at night with telehealth at Mullubimby Hospital's emergency department after it failed to gain the support of the facility's nurses.

At a meeting this afternoon the LHD dumped the plan for a telehealth trial, despite NSW Health Minister Jillian Skinner's support for telehealth.

The Board has asked the management at Mullumbimby Hospital to look at more cost-effective methods to mitigate a reliance on locums.

The Board has also asked management to continue to consult with local clinicians and the community to ensure the best for the patients of Mullumbimby and neighbouring communities.
