The Darling Downs South West Queensland Medicare Local (DDSWQML) became operational from 1 April 2012. This followed its establishment by the Australian Government as part of a network of Medicare Locals throughout Australia to coordinate primary health care delivery, tackle local health care needs and service gaps and drive improvements in primary health care and ensure that services are better tailored to meet the needs of local communities.

DDSWQML has been established as a not-for-profit charity with Public Benevolent Institution Status. Membership of the Medicare Local is open to organisations and individuals who are supportive of the strategic objectives of the Company. Foundation members include a range of primary health care organisations operating in the region: GP Connections, Blue Care, the University of Southern Queensland, the Queensland Aboriginal & Islander Health Council, Centacare, the Royal Flying Doctor Service (QLD Section) and RHealth. The Board of Directors is comprised of clinicians from throughout the region as well as people with specific skills to address the planning and delivery of better primary health care services in the Darling Downs and South West Queensland.
