We believe every Western Australian should have the same access to health services, regardless of where they live. That’s why we delivered significant health reforms during our time in government.
The Nationals WA delivered upgrades to regional hospitals across the State, from Karratha to Katanning, to make sure regional people could get to their hospital. We established primary health demonstration sites in Cunderdin and Pingelly to revolutionise the way we look at health care in the Wheatbelt. And of course, through Royalties for Regions we funded the roll out of the Emergency Telehealth Service.
The Nationals WA want to make sure that there are more doctors in regional WA, not just in Perth. We want to make sure that patients needing to travel for specialist care are supported through a revamped Patient Assisted Travel Scheme. We want to see regional people fit, healthy and happy.
