Report signals new era of collaboration between primary care and hospital sectors

Health system efficiencies, better outcomes for patients and the pivotal role of general practice in transforming our health system are some of the key takeaways from the State Government’s Sustainable Health Review, whose final report was released today.

WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA) is pleased to have had the opportunity to play a key role in representing the voice of the primary care sector throughout the review and will continue to do so as part of a newly agreed strategic partnership with the Department of Health, WA.

The partnership is intended to enable the joint planning, priority setting and funding of coordinated care, giving priority to the delivery of patient-centred, high quality and financially sustainable healthcare across WA.
