The West Belconnen Health Co-op is an affordable medical and health centre in the Australian Capital Territory that is owned by its patients. The Co-op has 4 sites with 10 bulk-billing doctors, a nurse practitioner, practice nurses and psychologists, as well as space for community organisations to offer programs and services. The Co-op was started in response to a shortage of health services in certain parts of the ACT and after 2 ½ years of operation it has shown that the community can work together to make a difference.
