Abstract: Appropriate housing, education, access to healthy food and economic, physical and emotional security are all vital determinants of good health. However, access to appropriate health services, ideally close to home, is important in terms of delivering the required preventive and curative health care to maximise the potential of community members for health and wellbeing. Rural and remote communities remain underserved in terms of access to health care. Yet innovation, born of necessity in the provision of health care to rural and remote residents, has been a stimulus to the evolution of remote health service delivery. Health services across Australia tend to adopt the lessons learnt from the bush to increase access to services and efficiency of service delivery for a wide variety of populations.
