NEWROC Health Strategy Consultation

Consultation has concluded

The North Eastern Wheatbelt Regional Organisation of Councils (NEWROC) are looking to address some of the key challenges in ensuring their communities are well provisioned in terms of health and wellbeing services.

The Shires that make up NEWROC, Koorda, Mt Marshall, Mukinbudin, Nungarin, Trayning and Wyalkatchem, are collaborating to develop a NEWROC Health Strategy that will be tailored to cater to the unique nature of rural health care in the six Shires and the diverse needs of their rural communities to ensure they receive timely, comprehensive and quality care.

This process will also seek to cement robust partnerships across the six Shires and health service providers in the region.

The project has been made possible through Royalties for Regions funding.

NEWROC residents are invited to provide feedback on their health and wellbeing needs by clicking on the 'Quick Survey' and 'Your Telehealth Story' tabs below.

    Not sure if NEWROC are aware that all CRC have the capability to hook up to medical specialists through our video conferencing facilities. The Koorda CRC hosts regular appointments for clients of Diabetes WA, and we have also hooked up patients to their specialists in Perth for one off appointments using the scopia system to save patients both time and money. If NEWROC want to explore making this more available to help bridge the distance between practitioners and patients.
