Health and Wellbeing
There are many factors that influence the health and wellbeing of a community: social networks and support services, participating in community decision-making, safe and healthy places to live and work, and communal spaces in which to meet and gather.
Flinders Council provides a number of health promotion and preventative health initiatives throughout the year to enhance and promote the health and wellbeing of all Flinders' communities. Visit the Community Calendar to find out what’s on.
Council also administers the Rural Primary Health Service (RPHS), providing funding towards the visiting Podiatry Service as well as to community nursing positions that service both the Flinders and Cape Barren Island communities. The fund holder is Tasmania Medicare Local; RPHS funding is made available from the Federal Government's Department of Health & Ageing.
