Integrated Health Care Model

In 2018, the Shire of Coolgardie signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with St John WA to develop the St John Country Primary Health Care Model.

The model not only addresses day-to-day health issues but coordinates care for Aboriginal Australians and people with chronic diseases.

Services also include weekly GP tele-health sessions, a Community Transport Service, and a resilient ambulance service.

To build on the St John Country Primary HealthCare Model, the Shire has also entered into MOUs with a range of allied-health service providers including physiotherapists, paediatric occupational therapists and disability services providers.

The delivery of a coordinated, integrated health care system that helps people get the right care, at the right time, in the right place, is the Shire’s goal.
