Connecting health to meet local needs
Welcome to our new website!
The Far West NSW Medicare Local focuses on the remote health services of the region. We provide a platform to progress planning for the Commonwealth's national primary health care reforms.
Our main priority is the development and delivery of effective primary health care services to some of the most isolated and disadvantaged communities of NSW. We will work to capitalise on the underlying collective healthcare capacity of General Practice services and strengthen health partnerships with prominent Aboriginal Health Services, Local Health Districts and other health organisations in our region.
Taking in the largest geographical area of all NSW Medicare Local organisations, we are leading the Commonwealth's commitment to delivering better access and improved health outcomes for communities in the Outback. Our work enhances the management and treatment of disease and builds greater capacity to protect and promote the health and wellbeing of individuals and the resilience of our communities.
