Remote Area Health Corps is in the process of updating detailed community profiles to reflect the amendments below:
- Some detailed community profiles currently state that RAHC HPs are not required to obtain permits for their placement as they are exempt under legislation related to Emergency Response. This is incorrect. Please note that it is a legal requirement under Commonwealth and Northern Territory law that a written permit is required to enter or remain on Aboriginal land for all our HPs.
- Some detailed community profiles currently do not reflect that the clinics are now Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS).
- Some detailed community profiles currently do not reflect that Miwatj Health are the health service in the following locations: Nhulunbuy, Yirrkala, Gunyangara, Galiwin'ku, Milingimbi, Gapuwiyak and Ramingining.
We are working hard to ensure that the detailed community profiles are updated as soon as possible to include the above information.
If you would like further information or clarification about these amendments, or about the communities where we work, please do not hesitate to contact our team.
