Wentworth Shire

The Collaborative Care Program in Wentworth is working with the towns of the Wentworth Shire to understand local needs and improve access to primary health care in these communities. The project is evaluating the success of a model of care developed by Coomealla Health Aboriginal Corporation (CHAC), in collaboration with local stakeholders, to provide a GP clinic and primary care service in the town of Wentworth. The town of Wentworth (<1500 population) experienced private GP practice market failure in 2020. In response, CHAC partnered with Wentworth Shire Council to open a GP clinic in Wentworth to serve the whole community.
