It is with much sadness that we learned of the passing of Dr Marten Muis.

Dr Muis was a much-loved local doctor who provided medical services at the Nyngan Multi Purpose Service (MPS) and the Bogan Shire Medical Centre. MPS staff and Western NSW Local Health District are thinking of Dr Muis’ family and the Nyngan community during this time.

Services at the Nyngan MPS are continuing as normal and the LHD and the Nyngan Health Service are exploring options to ensure ongoing medical support for the community. Nyngan Health Service Manager Jenny Griffiths said, “he was certainly a wonderful doctor and had a lively sense of humour. He made quite an impact while he was here”.

She said there is a memorial table set up in the waiting room with a condolence book which will be sent to Mr Muis’ family. Residents are encouraged to share memories and write a message.
