Minister Pitt said he valued the opportunity to speak with community members about progress to establish the facility and future opportunities for the community.

“If not for COVID-19 travel restrictions I would have been here months ago. But I was very pleased to visit Kimba and meet with the local community to discuss this critically important facility,” Minister Pitt said.

“It will support the continued supply of nuclear medicine and research in Australia, that two in three of us on average will need at some point in our lives. 

Minister Pitt was hosted by the Member for Grey, Rowan Ramsey.
