WALGA consults with its Members on a variety of topics to inform our advocacy and service offering to Members.

The scope of our requests for feedback reflects the range of operations conducted by Local Government.
Please see below for items for which we are currently seeking feedback from our Members.

Regional Health Services Survey

WALGA has been requested by State Council to gather information on the health services currently operating in regional, rural and remote Local Government areas, to inform advocacy on behalf of the sector.
Regional, rural or remote areas can lack adequate medical services to appropriately respond to health issues and emergencies in the community.

Various factors can contribute to this situation, including the difficulty recruiting and retaining health staff, a lack of funding for positions, or a lack of facilities.

To ensure that all Local Governments across the State can benefit from advocacy in this space, WALGA State Council has asked that the Association seek more information from members and Zones on this issue.

This information will be reported to State Council to determine the next steps to be taken.

WALGA will collate this information and use it to guide further advocacy on behalf of the sector.
