Ms Teakle advocated for more defibrillators in rural areas to help “save a mate”, while Ms Williamson spoke about the importance of services such as telehealth, especially during the pandemic.The WA winner, chosen from all the regional ambassadors at the Perth Royal Show, will go on to compete for the national title.
