Aboriginal Health Unit
Our Local Health District would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land within our boundaries - the people of the Eora Nation. We would also like to acknowledge the elders past and present.
The Aboriginal Health Unit provides advocacy, leadership, cultural support and education to the mainstream health services as well as to the Aboriginal Health workforce. The unit is responsible for the development of strategic partnerships, planning and performance and the coordination of Aboriginal health programs across the health service.
Aboriginal staff work across a number of different departments and services. These include:
- Early Years, Children and Young People
- Chronic Diseases
- Mental Health
- Drug Health
- Infectious Diseases and Sexual Health
- Oral Health
- Health Promotion
- Aboriginal Liaison Officers (Royal Prince Alfred Hospital only)
Partnerships are an important part of providing Aboriginal Health Services to residents of Sydney Local Health District.
We have recently signed the Sydney Metropolitan Partnership Agreement together with the Redfern Aboriginal Medical Service, Northern Sydney Local Health District and South Eastern Sydney Local Health District.
We are currently developing a new website for Aboriginal Health Services at Sydney Local Health District. If you require any more information please contact us on 9515 9288.
