Wheatbelt & Great Southern Chronic Conditions Network


On Friday 21 July 2017, WA Country Health Service (WACHS) and WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA) hosted a Chronic Conditions Workshop in Narrogin. The aim was to bring together health professionals from the Great Southern and Wheatbelt regions to facilitate information sharing and improve referral pathways for people with chronic health conditions. One outcome of the workshop was that participants were keen to establish a Wheatbelt Chronic Conditions Network and others indicated they would like to be involved in the Great Southern Chronic Conditions Network.
