Consultation open for Genetic Health WA Service Plan

The WA Department of Health and Genetic Health WA (GHWA) are seeking feedback on GHWA’s draft inaugural service plan.

GHWA, formerly the Genetic Services of Western Australia provides genetic counselling, genetic testing, and family planning support for people impacted by certain genetic conditions.

The draft service plan outlines the future direction of the service and aims to enhance the experience of those who use it.

You are encouraged to read the draft service plan and provide your feedback via a short survey (external site).

All responses will remain confidential and will only be used to inform the final service plan.

Consultation closes on 31 May 2024.

The draft service plan has been informed by feedback received from over 300 GHWA stakeholders, including consumers and carers, GHWA staff, medical specialists and primary care providers, and representatives from patient organisations and health service providers.
