Title A definition of a rural model of health service delivery: A ‘hub and spoke’ (service partner) model

The Infrastructure Renewal Project for Rural and Remote Areas aims to define a rural model of health service delivery for Queensland, outline service profiles for a selection of rural health service sites and engage architect consultants to audit and review the related infrastructure.

In the absence of a strategic statewide policy for rural health services (but in anticipation of this work) it is proposed that this paper would underpin the future rural and remote policy development by describing a ‘hub and spoke’ (service partner) model of service delivery for rural and remote areas. This paper identifies Queensland rural hub sites and their associated spoke sites. The ‘hub and spoke’ model of rural service delivery aims to assist in ameliorating some of the many issues faced by the rural sector through improvements to organisation, governance, management and leadership and the development of formalised service networks.
