The Australian Government recognises the critical role the after hours services play in a high quality health care system and invests considerable resources on the delivery and improvement of after hours services.

The after hours period refers to the time:

  • before 8am and after 6pm weekdays
  • before 8am and after 12pm Saturdays
  • all day Sundays and public holidays

 

WAPHA is focussing on services that integrate and enhance other key activities of system reform that the PHNs commission, with the purpose of increasing efficiency and effectiveness of medical services and improving coordination and navigation of primary care.

 

WAPHA currently funds the following service providers to deliver After Hours services:
