Rural and Remote Clinical Support Unit


The Rural and Remote Clinical Support Unit (RRCSU) provides support services to Torres and Cape, Central West, North West and South West Hospital and Health Services.

The unit supports safe and quality rural and remote health care through the production of clinical resources, training, credentialing, medical employment and advisory support. On request, support is available for all Hospital and Health Services (HHS) with rural and remote facilities.

The Rural and Remote Clinical Support Unit was developed in response to the need to provide governance and support services to the smaller rural and remote Hospital and Health Services. Since 2012, the Unit has been hosted by the Torres and Cape Hospital and Health Service.
