Funding allows for more specialist staff at Bendigo Health

BENDIGO Health will receive extra drug and alcohol support after the state government pledged $500,000 in funding.

Minister for mental health Mary Wooldridge made the announcement as she visited the hospital's emergency department this afternoon.

She said the money would enable the employment of additional specialist staff and help tackle drugs such as ice.
