Remote area service centres

Our service centres are the first point of health care and emergency services for 12 remote Western Australian communities.

Our primary health remote area nurses are registered nurses who work in remote communities, when there is no hospital or resident doctor. As a result, these nurses respond to a wide range of health needs in both a clinic and community setting. They also have advanced clinical skills that enable them to deliver a high level of health care.

We have remote area service centres located at:

Abrolhos Island (March – 30 June only) 0427 422 665
