The Far West NSW Medicare Local will focus on the remote health services of the region. It will 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 will be leading the Commonwealth's commitment to delivering better access and improved health outcomes for communities in the Outback. Our work will enhance the management and treatment of disease and build greater capacity to protect and promote the health and wellbeing of individuals and the resilience of our communities.
