On 1 March 2016, an advertisement ran in the Kingborough Chronicle incorrectly advising that Centrelink and Medicare services at Kingston would move to Hobart.
This is incorrect. From late June this year, Medicare and Centrelink services currently operating from the Kingston Service Centre will be delivered from the Service Tasmania shopfront at Shop 87a in the Channel Court shopping complex.
This partnership with Service Tasmania will result in no change to the level of services offered.
In the meantime, the existing Medicare and Centrelink services at 9–15 John Street will be maintained.
