WA Primary Health Alliance Councils and Committees

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

WA Primary Health Alliance is supported by a governance structure of councils and committees as we look system-wide at gaps, identify ways to improve important primary care services and encourage innovation in the delivery of care. The councils and committees have a core purpose to support health care integration, strengthen collaboration and increase transparency. They assist us in progressing our key priorities and help us listen to local communities to understand who they are, their unique health needs, and the ways in which their world is changing. View the governance structure to find out more.

Clinical Committees in each of the seven country regions, and Clinical Councils in metropolitan Perth, have membership from health professionals, allied health practitioners, medical administrators, hospital executives and clinicians from all areas of primary care. Read the Charters to find out more.

WA Primary Health Alliance facilitates changes to the health system that improve health outcomes and deliver better value to the community in seven priority areas, as guided by the Australian Government. These are:

  • Aboriginal Health
  • Aged Care
  • Alcohol and other Drugs
  • Digital Health
  • Health Workforce
  • Mental Health
  • Population Health

Our focus is on helping those most at risk of poor health outcomes, so they can access excellent care close to home. Currently, a disproportionate number of LGBTI people experience poorer mental health outcomes compared with the general Australian population as well as discrimination, harassment and hostility in many parts of everyday life, impacting access to health services. We have LGBTI-specific positions on our councils and committees.
