Border closures won't affect medical

Locals in NSW needing hospital treatment are being encouraged to continuing going to Mildura Base Hospital.

The hospital says the border closure that's now in force won't be an impediment to important medical and health care.

While a permit system's being developed the hospital says people should not be afraid to cross the Murray if they need medical treatment.
