RAHC sends its 1,000th new-to-remote urban health professional to the NT

On Tuesday 2nd May 2017, we sent our 1000th new-to-remote health professional, Ellenie Palmer, Oral Health Therapist from Newcastle, NSW into a remote Indigenous community in the Northern Territory (NT). Special thanks to Nikki Dargan from the NT Department of Health for sharing the occasion with our team in Darwin.

RAHC has delivered 1,000 new-to-remote health professional placements in remote Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory (NT) since our inception in late 2008. These placements have been completed by our dedicated GPs, RNs, Oral and Allied Health professionals. As of 30 April, RAHC health professionals have contributed to around 412 years of health services in the NT.

We thank all our health professionals, Health Services, support staff and other stakeholders for helping us achieve this significant milestone and being part of the effort to improve Indigenous health outcomes in the NT.
