GoShare opportunity for general practices to connect with non-English speakers

  26 May 2022  NWMPHN   

Does your practice see large numbers of patients who speak languages other than English?

Does your practice use the GoShare platform to communicate with patients by SMS – or would you like to?

Would you like to help increase COVID-19 vaccine rates among specific communities in your local area?

North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network (NWMPHN) has partnered with Healthily to offer practices a unique opportunity to connect with patients in their first language.

About the opportunity

We are looking for practices who see patients from the following language groups:

  • Albanian
  • Arabic
  • Assyrian
  • Bosnian
  • Croatian
  • Greek
  • Macedonian
  • Serbian
  • Somali
  • Turkish
  • or another language (suggested by your practice)

Your practice will receive:

  • a custom GoShare video package featuring a local community leader speaking about the benefits of COVID-19 vaccines in one of the above languages
  • 800 GoShare SMS credits and a GoShare Plus licence for the project
  • support from Healthily to send this tailored health message to your patients.
