South Burnett Health grew from data that was originally collected by the
Southern Queensland Rural Division of General Practice
in early 2007.
This organisation believed that easy public access to up-to-date information
about all the health services that were available in the South Burnett via
the Internet was a worthwhile goal which would help many people in the region.
And the South Burnett Online network agreed.
In general - for a variety of reasons - most Australian health systems have
been very backward in the adoption of the Internet. And (in particular) providing
simple, easily-accessible information about basic health services to the public

also changed their direction.
However a second version of the site was relaunched in November 2010 using

to list (or update) their details on our network more than once.
