General and Primary Health Care
General Clinic with a focus on Primary and Acute Health Care
The Main Clinic is located at 25 Third Street. It is staffed by male and female Registered Aboriginal Health Practitioners (RAHPs), Registered Nurses and General Practitioners. A Senior RAHP oversees its operation in the position of the Clinic Coordinator. The Main Clinic staff can make referrals to other Wurli services i.e. Wellbeing, AOD, SIF, Gudbinji, WWFPP and Strongbala Justice or to external organisations when required.
The Main Clinic is AGPAL accredited.
Main Clinic has a triage system in order to improve patient flow and to reduce the waiting time in which they will be allocated to a team within our triage system – to help improve the flow with regard to their health care.
The Triage RAHP/RN provides first point of contact for all clients that present to the clinic – they take their basic observations check then they start the health journey into the main clinic for their health care. This system operates on a walk in basis.
At this stage Main Clinic does not offer appointments.
Our Main Clinic services and activities are funded by the Australian Government through the Commonwealth Department of Health; and the NT Government through the NT Department of Health
