Practice Assist background
Practice Assist is a joint initiative of Rural Health West and WAPHA. We have combined our resources to develop a comprehensive and state-wide general practice support service. This service, called Practice Assist, launched in October 2017 and provides a single point of contact for all general practice staff across Western Australia.
WAPHA is supported by funding from the Australian Government under the PHN Program.
Rural Health West is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and the WA Country Health Service.
