In 2016, St John started providing primary health services through the acquisition of four existing medical centres and this model was enhanced with the introduction of Urgent Care centres. This move gave St John the opportunity to provide GP jobs for qualified practitioners looking to migrate to Perth, Australia.
Our expansion into primary health is a strategic move aimed at ensuring people can access vital health services, particularly when they have unexpected health needs. This is an extension of what we have always sought to achieve through first aid training and ambulance services. It helps us move towards the desired position of being an effective gateway into the health system for unscheduled care.
