Remote eye health team in NT dismayed over funding delay

Date posted: 2 May 2014

The Northern Territory Government's Central Australian eye medical team is urging the Government to better resource its unit. Every week the team travel to remote Indigenous communities to see patients who aren't able to easily visit the clinic in town. They say the number of potentially blinding eye disease cases in Indigenous communities is rising.

Interviews are held with Dr Tim Henderson, eye specialist from Alice Springs hospital; David Lodge, Primary Health Care Manager from Tijikala Clinic; Emily Procopis, optometrist; and Dr Tim Greenwell, ophthalmology registrar.
