Funding for Regional Projects
Earbus Foundation of WA has been successful in securing substantial Commonwealth Government funding to provide ear health services to regional WA, commencing from February 2014. EFWA CEO Paul Higginbotham was excited by the prospect of building on the extensive consultation work done throughout 2013. “We have forged excellent partnerships with Aboriginal Medical Services, the ENT community and Education Department offices in the regions. We are looking forward to working in partnership with WA Country Health Services to enhance screening and treatment for Aboriginal children throughout the regions” said Mr Higginbotham.
EFWA Director of Clinical Services, Lara Shur will lead the EFWA professional team in planning and delivering the new services. “We are focussed on providing high-quality, innovative ear health for the regions” said Mrs Shur, who has extensive managerial and clinical experience across both WA and NT. “Our aim will be to deliver the Commonwealth the best value possible for their investment of ear health funds in the Earbus Foundation.”
