Demographic Area Eurobodalla Shire with a population of around 37,000 will continue to grow. It has an older population, with a median age of 50 years (NSW equals 37 years) and the older aged groups are expected to have the greatest population growth into the future. The Shire also has the largest Aboriginal population within the SNSW LHD (4.9% of total population, compared to 2.5% in NSW). Eurobodalla population health data indicates there will be a significant growth in service demand brought about by the rise in the ageing population, general population increase and substantial seasonal tourist influx. Considering population growth alone, 16 more beds will be required by 2017 increasing to 36 by 2022. In addition, other factors are influencing demand projections including the introduction of a sub-acute rehabilitation model, a memorandum of understanding with the ACT (resulting in more local inpatient services) and a significant forecast increase for cancer and renal services.
