The Organisation
This dynamic Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service provides a comprehensive and growing range of primary health care services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people residing in regional North Queensland. Their services include General Practice, maternal and child health, social and preventative health, health promotion and education, allied health, and specialist services.
