Community First Responder

After 130 years’ experience in the delivery of humanitarian and ambulance services in Western Australia, St John Ambulance now delivers a primary health care service for the community. A key part of this service is to offer patients another bulk-billed pathway to urgent care that is safe, timely and high quality.
   
St John Ambulance believe this service is necessary to ensure it continues the delivery of humanitarian services to the Western Australian community and in delivering an effective, efficient ambulance service now and well into the future.

By facilitating and providing primary health care, St John Ambulance is able to incorporate ambulance and primary health care into one service for unscheduled care requirements. This provides another safe and timely pathway into the health care system for people in need.

How is St John Ambulance doing this?

St John Health operates four primary health clinics across the metro area located in Armadale, Cannington, Cockburn and Joondalup.  These facilities are state of the art and offer a range of combined health solutions including general practice, dental, physiotherapy and podiatry.

St John Urgent Care Centres allow for patients with non-life-threatening injuries or illnesses to be seen by a doctor and receive the most appropriate care without the need to attend an emergency department. These centres are currently operating at the Armadale, Cannington and Cockburn clinics. X-rays, pathology and follow-up treatments such as plaster, urgent dental and stitches are all available onsite.
