We provide outpatient Aboriginal chronic and connecting care for Aboriginal people in Northern Sydney suffering from chronic and complex care conditions. We also provide a 48 hour follow up of all enrolled patients.

We offer clinical care and health promotion activities based on the concerns of the Aboriginal people of Northern Sydney. We work within the NSLHD boundary and the hospitals and homes within that boundary. We also have patients at AMS Redfern one of our partner agencies along with Community Care Northern Beaches (CCNB) Sydney North Primary Health Network (PHN) and our partner agencies within NSLHD.

Eligibility

Aboriginal patients enrolling for our service must meet one of the five listed chronic diseases:

  • hypertension
  • diabetes
  • COPD
  • coronary artery disease
  • congestive heart failure.

This is not to say that other Aboriginal people will not be seen. We offer free health checks, breast screening (through Breast Screen NSW) to Aboriginal women over 40 years of age twice a year and other health projects for Aboriginal people.

Referral

Self referral, medical referral or GP referral. Primary care services, government and non-government agencies should call 02 9462 9017.

Other information

 We work from the Aboriginal definition of health:

"Aboriginal health means not just the physical wellbeing of an individual but refers to the social, emotional and cultural wellbeing of the whole community in which each individual is able to achieve their full potential as a human being, thereby bringing about the total wellbeing of their community…"

We treat Aboriginal people holistically.
