System reform

WA Primary Health Alliance provides an important primary care perspective in the State Government’s health reform agenda. Through our involvement in the Sustainable Health Review, we have worked with government and health agencies to improve coordination of services, and involve GPs in co-designing new models of care and approaches to joint planning, co-commissioning and pooled funding opportunities for the Australian and State Governments.

We are closely involved in other key state health reforms such as the review of the Central Referral System and outpatient services, developing a model for Urgent Care Clinics, and partnering with WA Health in the Obesity Collaborative and Summit to develop a state obesity strategy and a WA LGBTI Health Strategy.

We participate in, and convene, various stakeholder reference and advisory groups and committees, and regularly contribute to consultation processes to inform the development and review of state and federal strategies, policies, frameworks and approaches.
