Health Workforce Queensland continues to collaborate with WQPHN to strive to improve access to much needed health workforce and service delivery improvements.” – Chris Mitchell, Health Workforce Queensland, CEO 

“The RFDS (Queensland Section) has continued over the last 12 months to further foster and grow our relationship with the WQPHN through our shared commitment to enhancing the health outcomes of communities in Western Queensland. Together, we have continued to navigate the impact of the COVID pandemic to some of the most remote communities in Queensland, and drive key initiatives to improve primary health care and mental health services .” – Meredith Staib, Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland Section), CEO
