New Aboriginal community health facility for Airds in New South Wales

Date posted: 18 July 2012

Aboriginal community controlled health service, Tharawal Aboriginal Corporation, has announced the construction of a new community health facility and the donation of a specialised ear nose and throat (ENT) microscope.

Tharawal's Chief Executive Officer, Daryl Wright, said the new facility would support both the local community and the education of medical students.

‘Our work with University of Western Sydney training Indigenous and non-Indigenous medical students will be fantastic,' he said.

‘Working with Indigenous patients will give them a great understanding of Aboriginal culture and will help them work with Aboriginal people across the country.'

The Royal College of Surgeons, with Inline Medical and Dental, donated the specialised ENT microscope to Tharawal's ENT clinic in June.

Tharawal's Clinical Manager, Dr Pauline Vunipola, said the microscope was already being put to good use.

‘We've had tremendous success with the microscope already as it gives a much faster diagnosis,' she said.
