Walk the Talk Stops By Nhulundu Health Service

Made it up to Gladstone and called in to the Nhulundu Health Service.

Nhulundu Health Service is an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (ACCHO) delivering health and medical services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Gladstone and surrounding communities. Their team provides general medical and allied health services including physiotherapy, exercise physiology, podiatry, and optometry. They also provide specialist services including cardiac care, psychiatry, and diabetes education.

Nhulundu also administers a number of programs for the community, including Family Wellbeing, Aged Care, Vaccination Services and Outreach Services including Home Care.

I was especially interested to learn about Nhulundu’s partnership with James Cook University with their GP Training Program. The program facilitates oppoprtunities for registrars to work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities as part of developing a better understanding of the specific needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and in doing so teach the importance of cultural sensitivity and safety to the next generation of doctors.

If you’re an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person needing assistance with maintaining your health and you live in or around the Gladstone, drop in to Nhulundu and see what they can do for you. More information about their services can be found on their website: https://www.nhulundu.com.au/

I’m off to Rocky and have a lot of stops before I move on!
