We want to make sure all Western Australians have access to top quality healthcare, no matter where they live. 

We know that attracting and retaining medical professionals in rural and remote areas is a challenge, including for local governments, so we're doing what we can to ease the burden. 

Our changes mean that local governments will be exempt from regulations requiring public tenders for extending medical services worth over $250,000. 

This cut to red tape will help drive rural and remote health investment, making it easier for local governments to retain crucial medical services for their communities.
