Women's Counselling Service
The Goldfields Esperance GP Network (GEGPN) and the Goldfields Women's Health Care Centre (GWHCC) forged a relationship when it was identified there was a need for a counselling service to reach the female population of the Eastern Goldfields.
The GEGPN employs a counsellor with professional qualifications and substantial industry experience to provide services to women seeking counselling assistance. This service operates four days a week from the GWHCC at 15 Dugan Street, Kalgoorlie.
