The Wheatbelt GP Network is a network of GPs who work within a geographical area known as the Central Wheatbelt. The WGPN covers an area of approximately 85,000 sq km of mostly wheat / sheep production in agricultural areas, with some fishing and mining areas and a developing tourism industry. The Central Wheatbelt area of WA is one of the most under resourced areas in Australia in regard to Health Services. As in much of rural Australia health problems in the area are very basic with chronic shortages of GPs and other health professionals.The Network's Strategic Plan aims at addressing the most basic issues to improve the health outcomes of the GP and community by working closely with key stakeholders, particularly GPs, to improve the level of primary health care services. This will form a foundation for a gradual improvement in health outcomes for the community. "Building healthy communities through general practice."
