Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Patients

To help ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people receive primary health care matched to their needs our doctors can assist with early detection, diagnosis and treatment for common conditions.

There are 3 health assessments available to different age groups to assist tin their physical, psychological and social wellbeing. Health Assessments are available to children under 15 years old, adults between 15 and 55 years old and patients aged 55 years and older.

Once a health assessment has been completed, patients are eligible for further support and treatment from practice nurses or allied health services.
