The National Rural Health Alliance is working with federal and state governments to look at training, educating and recruiting local people in health and medicine and other multidisciplinary funding models.

In an interview with ABC Weekend Breakfast on Sunday 12 March 2023, Chief Executive Susi Tegen said the Alliance is looking at ways of, ‘subsiding and finding other ways of developing a locally funded health service that is able to provide the support.’

‘By training the next generation of doctors, nurses and allied health professionals at a grassroots level, you actually increase the understanding of the way health care works, but also you look at the local community needs and you’re able to deliver what they need rather than works somewhere else.’
