WA doctors to subcontinent

THE WA-based Australia Clinic has signed agreements with a major hospital in Pakistan and a business partner in Mumbai, Western India.

Health Minister John Day said this would be the first time the clinic had entered into a business arrangement with a health provider on the subcontinent.

Health care looms as a major market for WA in the region.

The Australia Clinic was formed three years ago by the WA Government to provide healthcare to international clients.

The clinic includes input from major Perth public and private hospitals and can draw on the experience and expertise of more than 30,000 health professionals.

It has signed Memoranda of Understanding with the Shakut Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre in Pakistan and Asian Healthcare in Mumbai.

“WA has a culture of excellence in healthcare and health research,” Mr Day said. “For example, Princess Margaret hospital has a world class reputation for its cancer unit and is part of an exclusive international optimal treatments program for children with cancer.

“At Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital they are currently using the Stealth Station – the latest in image guided technology for neurosurgery.

“And at Royal Perth Hospital we have established interventional neuroradiology which deals with brain aneurisms and malformations. This is the leading unit of its kind in the southern hemisphere,” he said.
