I enjoy the holistic care that is provided by Aboriginal community controlled health services which begins with transport being available to patients all the way to Aboriginal health workers being available to accompany patients during their consult with the doctor. We also have some allied health services on-site at our practice which makes it easier for the Indigenous community to access these services.
I enjoy the general easy-going and cheerful nature of the staff who work here. They always make it seem as if no problem is too big or insurmountable. The patients are also appreciative of the service that we provide no matter how small or insignifcant they appear to be.
Organising follow up for patients can sometimes be challenging especially if they have complex circumstances. Thankfully, we have a few Aboriginal health workers who are adept in bringing these clients in for their follow up.
