What is Darling Downs HealthPathways
The Darling Downs HealthPathways Program is led by the Darling Downs Hospital and Health Service in partnership with the Darling Downs and West Moreton Primary Health Network. It seeks to foster a dynamic collaboration between its hospitals, community services spanning across public and private systems and primary healthcare services. The collaborative working partnership increases the collective’s capacity to provide the right quality of care in the right place by the right person at the right time.
