15NRHC Recommendation - 03/26/2019 - 15:10

Comprehensive primary health care requires adequate funding to reduce the long term health cost of acute care. Investing in acute health care does not improve long term health outcomes.

Recommendation Type: 


In small rural towns the local health service provides acute, residential, community and primary health services to their local communities. The challenge for the future is to get the right balance for services and funding.
