Mobile Women's Health Service

The Mobile Women's Health Service is made up of specially trained registered nurses based throughout Queensland who provide a free and confidential service for Queensland women. The service aims to improve the health and wellbeing of women in rural and remote areas of Queensland.

The service visits over 200 rural and remote communities in Queensland and services a 300 - 500km radius from base locations to provide clinics and other services on a regular basis.

The service supports all women, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and those from multicultural backgrounds. In some areas an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women's health worker assists the nurse in meeting the needs of local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.
