The Peel Mobile Health Service is an innovative way of taking health services into the heart of Peel communities. The aim of the highly visible and well-respected community service is to support and improve access to health care and health information with a focus on the outer Peel communities, those at social disadvantage and those with transport difficulties due to geographical isolation.
Health services wishing to utilise the mobile health van are orientated and trained to drive and use the vehicle. Related documentation (drivers license etc) on any driver of the vehicle is obtained by GP down south and kept on file and MOU’s are developed. Through a booking system, the vehicle is then able to be used by the health service provider to support health promotion, health education and delivery of services across the Peel region.
All operational costs are covered by GP down south, with the service provider required to bring their own consumables and equipment.
