Country Ambulance Strategy

Working towards a better ambulance service for country residents

In 2016 the WA Country Health Service Board endorsed the development of a comprehensive strategy to enable WA's country ambulance service to meet the needs of regional communities into the future.

The project has four phases:

  • review of current research and documentation
  • meet and consult with a range of participants on the current and future state of country ambulance services
  • review and test the information gathered
  • collate all information into a strategic options document.

WA Country Health Service is leading the development of the strategy with a series of health service stakeholder meetings across country WA between March and May 2017.Following the consultations, the findings will be presented to the WA Country Health Service Board by 30 June 2017 for further consideration.
