Allied health

Allied health incorporates qualified practitioners with specialised expertise who are not part of the medical, dental or nursing professions. Allied health services include:

  • clinical psychology
  • counselling
  • dietetics
  • excercise physiology
  • nutrition
  • occupational therapy
  • pharmacy
  • physiotherapy
  • podiatry
  • social work
  • and many other areas.

We work towards increasing access to a range of health services, including expanded primary health care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, in the prevention, detection, treatment and management of chronic conditions.

These programs promote a coordinated, multi-disciplinary team approach and the equitable distribution of services based on the health needs of each community. They include supplementary allied health services, and the Outreach Health Services program.
