About Us

WA Primary Health Alliance builds and strengthens primary health care in Western Australia, so people can access the services they need closer to home.

While the Australian health care system is one of the best in the world, it can be difficult to access for a variety of reasons.

Where someone is born, where they live, how much money they earn, and lack of service availability or suitability, can all impact their health.

It’s vital for people to get the care they need, closer to home, to avoid using the hospitals and specialists unnecessarily.

As the operator of all three Primary Health Networks in Western Australia, we aim to ensure that the people most at risk of poor health have access to quality care.

We achieve this by:

  1. Supporting general practice to deliver the highest quality patient care.
  2. Funding local primary health care services based on the needs of the community.
  3. Connecting local services to simplify the health care system.

By working closely with GPs, health professionals, service providers, hospitals, government and the community to strengthen primary care state-wide, we are delivering better health, together.
