Health care services is a critical service which is required by the city residents. The provision for access to clean and cheap health care is the primary goal of the government which works for the well-being of its citizens. The access to basic health care determines the health of the citizens in a city or a village. The number of people getting ill and receiving no medication can be related to the access to healthcare service in the locality. It is seen that rural regions have been discriminated in their right to basic healthcare services, whereas they also deserve a better healthcare service compared to the urban region. This report forms a basis of forming a committee which should look into immediate provision and access of healthcare services to the community living in rural New South Wales. The report also focuses on the various health issues and health care access issues and attitudinal perception of people towards healthcare. In addition, it provides certain recommendations for the interventions which can be adopted to reduce the accessibility issue.
The access to health care services is also determined by the access to transportation and the mobility of people to reach their destinations. In spite of having basic health care provisions, sometimes lack of transportation creates a big avoidance of people in the rural regions of NSW to reach to the doctors on time (Wakerman and Humphreys, 2002; Arcury et.al, 2005). The kind and variety of barriers which restrict them to access such services can be broadly classified into proximity, service availability, health needs and mobility. Penrose (2014) talks about the issue of poor transportation, poor quality of roads and the lack of funding required to boost rural health care services. Thus, with substantial evidence, it is important to introduce new facilities in these regions.
