The goal of the Improving Kimberley patients access to tertiary hospital care project is for Indigenous patients in the Kimberley region of Western Australia to have timely access to approrpriate and quality care through faster access to tertiary emergency facilities, services that match the community needs, and improved access to the emergency department, intensive care, and maternity facilities. This project began in February 2009 and is a partnership between WA Country Health Service and Northern Territory Health. The partnership resulted in an agreement for six beds per day made available for Kimberley patients to be treated at Royal Darwin Hospital.
The Improving Kimberley patients access to tertiary hospital care project won the Conference Partner Award at the WA Health Awards in 2011.
