Our story

Rural Health West believes that everyone, everywhere is entitled to good health and access to quality healthcare. For more than 30 years, we’ve worked hard to improve access to healthcare in our rural communities by delivering programs to attract, recruit and support health professionals to regional, rural and remote Western Australia.

We offer a range of programs throughout Western Australia to attract and support rural and remote health professionals including doctors, nurses, midwives, dentists and allied health professionals.

We support rural health professionals through a diverse range of programs and services including professional development such as conferences and workshops, financial support through grants and sponsorships, rural immersions, personal and family support, outreach programs, business support and advice to practices.

Our personalised recruitment service also helps fill roles such as rural medical, nursing, midwifery, dental and allied health jobs – where they’re needed most.

Ensuring rural health professionals can provide the best care for their community

Rural Health West offers a range of professional development opportunities throughout Western Australia, providing doctors, nurses, midwives, dentists and allied health professionals with the ability to upskill closer to home.

Through events such as regional workshops and conferences, we can ensure rural health professionals are given the best tools and training to provide quality healthcare to their communities. Explore the range of upcoming events below.
