Improving health in WA

At WA Health, we are equally concerned with prevention as well as treatment. 

Our public health programs are concerned with promoting health in the community, preventing disease before it occurs and managing risk.

Improving the way we plan and deliver our clinical services to a growing population remains a strong focus, with forums and initiatives including the clinical senate, and elective services reform. Our telehealth services ensure that more Western Australians can access the specialist care they need, no matter where they live.

Key stakeholder engagement and consultation remains a key priority, with Health Networks providing an organised forum to bring together thousands of consumers, clinicians, carers and policy makers, to find innovative ways to improve our health services.

And for those who need additional support, we pay particular attention to disadvantaged and vulnerable members of our community, including Aboriginal groups,refugees, migrants, women and children.

Safety and quality remains at the heart of what we do, ensuring that our clinicians work in an environment that promotes continuous improvement to provide all Western Australians the very best of care.

WA Health values and promotes the integral role of research and innovation in improving health outcomes and health system performance, while also contributing to wider social and economic benefits for the community.

WA Health continues to undergo a significant transformation with more than $7 billion invested in new and existing services and infrastructure. Health care in the southern inland region of Western Australia is being transformed through the Royalties for Regions program (external site).

All WA Health owned and leased premises are smoke free environments.
