Ngaanyatjarra Health Service (NG Health)

Ngaanyatjarra Health Service website

The Ngaanyatjarra Health Service was formed in July 1985, initially with three clinics, at Blackstone, Jameson and Warakurna and now has over 9 clinics. It operates under dedicated funding agreements that recognise the principles of community control and responsibility for staff and resources within a precise legislative framework. Community based health staff providing full-time primary health care at community health clinics have proved most effective in raising community health standards. This is delivered through a multidisciplinary approach incorporating P.H.C., Public Health Programs and Health Promotion Activities.

The administration and management of Ngaanyatjarra Health Services is undertaken from Alice Springs; administrative, finance, information technology, health program support and patient liaison officers are situated next to the Ngaanyatjarra Council Offices in Alice Springs. Coordination and management of all clinical services, aged care and HACC programmes on the lands are undertaken by the Lands based Clinical Services Coordinator. A public health coordinator ensures collaboration of all upstream health promotion and public health programs.
