The funding enabled GRAMS to purchase additional medical scrubs to help protect our frontline health workers The funding was also used to purchase Ipads to enable the provision of telehealth services, as well as emergency relief hygiene packs which were distributed to COVID-19 vulnerable communities.

Almost 200 scrubs have been delivered to our clinics in Geraldton, Carnarvon and Mount Magnet and 20 iPads have been distributed to enable our health professionals to continue delivering essential services to patients isolated at home.

400 health hygiene relief packs have been distributed so far to families living in regional WA, reinforcing the crucial COVID-19 message of practising safe hygiene including washing hands regularly to stop the spread of harmful germs.
