HealthWest Partnership

--- HealthWest Partnership

HealthWest Partnership is a strategic alliance of two Primary Care Partnerships (WestBay Alliance and Brimbank Melton Primary Care Parntership) established to support and improve the planning, coordination and delivery of health and community services in Melbourne’s western areas of Brimbank, Hobsons Bay, Maribyrnong, Melton and Wyndham.

HealthWest brings together 32 health care providers, community organisations and local government members in a voluntary alliance to strengthen coordination and input into healthy public policy, prevention, early intervention and chronic care initiatives.

The partnership is committed to supporting an integrated approach to strengthening our local communities’ health and wellbeing.

HealthWest promotes partnerships and coordinated service system approaches for: identifying and responding to specific community needs; incorporating social determinants of health into health planning; promoting equal access to health information and services; fostering joint health initiatives and discussion; and supporting professional and staff development on shared health and community issues.
