Everyone deserves access to quality healthcare.
Rural Health West is the leading health workforce agency in Western Australia. We work hard behind the scenes to provide a range of support to rural health professionals to keep country people healthy. With more than 25 years in the rural health sector, we are able to identify and implement solutions to health workforce issues and we are known as the 'go to' people for rural health workforce.
We are funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and the Government of Western Australia WA Country Health Service to deliver programs designed to attract, recruit and support medical and health professionals to rural Western Australia.
We have been improving access to health care services for country communities for over 25 years, and work collaboratively with government agencies, private organisations and other non-government organisations at local, state and national levels.
The organisation is administered by an eight member Board of Directors and managed by our Chief Executive Officer, Tim Shackleton. For more information about our Board and Management Team, visit the staff pages on our website.
