Plaques with an apology from New South Wales Health to members of the Stolen Generation will be installed at hospitals and health facilities in the state’s west.

The moves follows on from an apology made by NSW Health in 2022 aims to recognise the trauma inflicted on Indigenous people through the removal of children and the institution’s role in that.

Western NSW Local Health District Chief Executive Mark Spittal says “Our health services should be places of comfort and healing, where all people feel safe, respected and cared for”.

NSW Health Secretary Susan Pearce made the apology in 2022 to mark National Sorry Day.
