The Health Services Act 2016 commenced 1 July 2016 to modernise the public health system, setting out how we govern, structure and manage WA Health to bring decision-making closer to service delivery and patient care.
This involves establishing the WA Country Health Service (WACHS) as a separate statutory authority, governed by a Board that is legally responsible and accountable for the delivery of safe, high-quality, efficient and economical health services to its local communities.
The interim WACHS Board is comprised of nine highly capable and committed professionals with a diverse range of experience across the fields of medicine and health care, finance, law, and community and consumer engagement.
Health Service Boards will bring a diverse range of skills and experience to ensure the delivery of safe, high-quality and sustainable health care to our communities.
Deputy Board Chair
- Mr Michael Hardy
- Dr Daniel Heredia
- Dr Kim Isaacs
- Mr Joshua Nisbet
- Mrs Mary Anne Stephens
