Medical Specialist Outreach Programs

The Rural Health Outreach Fund and the Medical Outreach Indigenous Chronic Disease Program are designed to improve access to specialist medical and allied health services in rural and remote areas, and in communities with significant Indigenous populations. This is achieved by supporting specialists and allied health professionals to travel to rural and remote locations to provide clinical services, and to up-skill GPs and health workers. Access to these services is through GP referral.
Some Aboriginal identified services do not require a GP referral – please contact a HealthWISE office for these Medical Outreach Indigenous Chronic Disease Program services. Fee structure is determined by provider and needs to be confirmed on booking. Ask your GP or contact HealthWISE for information about specific providers.
