Title: FLINDERS PUBLIC HOSPITALS DISTRICT BOARD
Start Date: 26 Mar 1959
End Date: 03 Jun 1987
Description:

The order in Council creating the District was never gazetted, so the only guide to the date of its establishment is the gazettal of the election of Board members. The small population of the municipality was always a problem and on 3 June 1987 Flinders Island became part of the Launceston Public Hospitals District (SR1987/123).
