Explore Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services in the South West
Working in Aboriginal Medical Services presents diverse new challenges in the provision of comprehensive, clinical primary health care services and provides the unique opportunity to make a real impact on the health outcomes throughout regional Indigenous communities.
There are two Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services operating in the South West region.
