We were delighted to welcome over 120 health professionals to attend the Bunbury launch of the South West Health Professionals Network on 17 July.
We heard from speakers Vivienne Duggin and Dr Sarah Moore from The Rural Clinical School of WA describing how the network came about with support from our stakeholders. Next steps for the network include the development of a member directory. The directory will allow members to search for other members in the network, as well as showcase their skills and make connections. Participation in the member directory will be optional and all members will be able to choose whether or not they wish to participate. The South West Health Professionals Network has a 221 strong membership since it launched at the end of June.
GP down south is an exemplary not-for-profit community organisation. We have been providing health and wellbeing services in the Peel regions and the South West of WA since 1994.
