Access to health services is an essential component of any thriving community.

Western Downs Regional Council believes in developing a region where residents can age in place, rather than leave their hometowns to access primary health care services.

To support its vision, Western Downs Regional Council partners with aged care and retirement facilities, together with supporting health services and allied services.

There is demand for expansion of health services in the region and opportunities for further investment in both allied and primary health care service. We believe the Western Downs is well positioned to attract quality health service providers.

To ensure this can be realised, the Western Downs Planning Scheme has identified health precincts to allow for the co-location of public and private health infrastructure.

Council has identified the following opportunities worthy of further investigation:

  • After hours GP services
  • Drug and alcohol services
  • Exercise physiologists
  • NDIS support services
  • Allied health
  • Early intervention
  • Government Health Agencies
  • Retirement villages/aged care facilities
