Abstract

Closure, relocation or downgrading
of health services, along with
other services such as schools and
banks, is a scenario that has been played out in
many country towns across Australia and in
other western countries over recent years. Yet
issues of rural health and wellbeing continue
to be of concern, with rural communities
tending to have pooret health outcomes than
their metropolitan counterparts (Australian
Institute of Health and Welfare, 2(05). There
is growing evidence of the effectiveness of
partnerships involving the community, in
increasing the capacity of communities to
respond to their own health needs
