The 715 Health Check
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged to have a comprehensive 715 Health Check every 9-12 months to ensure their health needs are being met and to identify any preventable health conditions. The friendly nurse at Bungee Bidgel is available every Tuesday to complete the 715 Health Check. You will then see one of the doctors who can arrange for any necessary referrals.
The Aboriginal Health Service has established a referral pathway with NSLHD hospital dental services to provide efficient and free dental for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients.
Bungee Bidgel also runs monthly optometry clinics offering free eye checks for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients. Depending on their needs, patients can obtain either free or low-cost glasses. For updated clinic dates call Bungee Bidgel or have a look on our Facebook page.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients can be signed up for Closing the Gap which offers cheaper prescription medications. Once seen through the Bungee Bidgel clinic, patients are able to attend the practice at anytime to see a GP.
