Fremantle Medicare Local
Fremantle Medicare Local is a locally run, independent, non-government organisation that aims to proactively shape a healthier community by working in collaboration with primary health care providers and the broader community.
We are building on the achievements of Fremantle GP Network through extending and strengthening engagement and support for general practice whilst building new relationships with other primary health care providers. By doing this we will help patients access the right treatment in the right place at the right time.
Fremantle Medicare Local aims to be a flexible and innovative organisation that works collaboratively with the community and stakeholders to improve the health and wellbeing of the local population.
The population of Fremantle Medicare Local is 218,895 based on the 2011 census. Our region consists of:

Fremantle Medicare Local acknowledge the Whadjuk people, part of the Noongar Language Group, and their elders past and present, the traditional owners of this land on which we are based.
