Well supported country doctors delivering quality medical care
The Better Medical Care for Rural WA Initiative is a coordinated, targeted response to address the challenges faced by rural doctors across the State. It is a partnership between the WA Country Health Service and Rural Health West to ensure doctors can access relevant ongoing medical training, timely locum support, and professional mentoring, and that their families are well supported to live and work across rural Western Australia.
Many communities across rural Western Australia are visited by specialist medical teams and health professionals to help country people access the care they need closer to home. It is important the care provided by visiting teams is coordinated with local medical and health professionals who may be required to provide ongoing care for people between specialist visits.
