Indigenous Health Worker improves health service delivery in Geraldton

Date posted: 19 February 2014

The Geraldton Regional Aboriginal Medical Service (GRAMS) in Western Australia has recently employed a new model of service delivery which centres on an Indigenous Health Worker, and has resulted in an increase in the number of patients seen and better follow-up and continuity of care.

The new model still maintains the General Practitioner as the principle provider, however the inclusion of an Indigenous Health Worker as the team leader has led to improved preparedness and results from each visit.
