Precincts approach is progressing

We are committed to fostering integrated healthcare precincts in priority locations.

Integrated healthcare precincts in priority locations aim to enhance integration at a local level and direct funding where it will deliver the most impact.

The integrated healthcare precincts approach involves several primary health care organisations in a specific location, including general practice, working together in a coordinated way. The aim is to improve referral pathways, enable efficiencies and to improve the experience of individuals accessing services and maximise health outcomes.

WAPHA is supporting commissioned service providers to develop a precinct to optimise care for people with mental health issues and other multiple long term health conditions while building on the capacity and capability of existing health care provision. Armadale and Bunbury have been identified as priority areas using a range of data and localised health care information and WAPHA will be supporting precinct development in these areas. Funding is available to support precinct development.
