Important Notice

Far West NSW Medicare Local Limited was established on 1st May 2012 and began operations on 1st July 2012 as a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee and as a member based organisation.

Far West NSW Medicare Local was part of a National Network of 61 like organisations created in response to the Federal Governments greater focus on Primary Health Care.

In 2014 the Commonwealth Government announced that new Primary Health Networks (PHNs) will replace Medicare Locals, from 1 July 2015, and that the name Medicare Local could no longer be used.

From the 30 September 2015, the Company will no longer provide any contracted services to Government and nonGovernment and commence to cease operations in early 2015.  Services previously provided under the FWNSWML have been transition to the NSW Outback Division of General Practice and Western Primary Health Network.  For more information regarding the FWNSWML please contact sgordon@fwml.com.au.
