The WAMS Program Team provide Primary Health Care and opportunistic health screening to towns within the Walgett Shire and other remote locations. One of the main focuses of the Program Team is to provide health promotion activities which are implemented into the community to increase awareness on various health issues.
WAMS are involved in health promotion events that are celebrated at an International, National and State Level.
Staff are encouraged to attend events as interacting with the community is a valuable method of aiding in the building of relationships.
Every year staff offer health checks at the local show to promote awareness of specific diseases which are prevalent in the community, eg diabetes, heart disease and poor nutrition.
