Health Networks Supported Programs

Health Networks provides funding for a number of ongoing programs and pilot programs which support the continuous improvement of health care services across WA. We support non-government organisations to deliver pilot programs aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of West Australians.

Health Networks supports evidence based pilot programs to provide the opportunity to assess innovative service delivery models before they are taken up by Health Service Providers for roll out across WA. All of the ongoing Health Networks programs began as highly successful pilot programs.

Pilot Programs

Diabetes Complex Care Clinic Pilot

The Diabetes Complex Care Clinic (DCCC) is a pilot project to improve community based treatment for people with complex diabetes. The program builds a network between a patient’s GP and a multidisciplinary team in the DCCC which includes advanced trained GPs, diabetes educators, dietitians, and exercise physiologists.

The DCCC team provide advanced interventional care and advice to patients and supports their regular GP to follow through on their management plan. The program delivers high quality, complex care while significantly reducing the patient’s wait time for a consultation and frees space in hospital outpatient clinics for patients who require specialist care.
