Information for patients

The Australian Government Department of Health funded Outreach programs have become a key component of Australia’s healthcare system for more than 20 years, ensuring that people living in regional, rural, and remote communities and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have access to the high-quality, multidisciplinary team care required to meet their health needs. In 2021-22, CheckUP supported approximately 150 Outreach providers to visit to 180 locations across the state.

Providing access to specialised medical services reduces patients’ needs to travel long distances to attend a consultation or receive treatment, meaning they can stay close to their family and community.

“Having my health care delivered close to home saves me many hours on the road, and it means less time away from my workplace and my wife and kids.” – Outreach patient

Health services vary between clinics and are planned in partnership through engagement with a wide range of stakeholders, including general practices and primary health clinics.

Referral to Outreach health providers is coordinated by your GP and General Practice.
