GP down south is leading a Health and Community Services Mapping Project within the Shire of Augusta Margaret River between now and 30 June 2019.
The project aims to build partnerships and better integrate and coordinate health and community services via mapping existing services and identifying gaps or areas of need within the region.
To do this we require the input of this community to ensure all areas of social, health and community based services are evaluated.
Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt visited the Peel Health Hub to see the progress of the build and discuss the project development.
