Bega Garnbirringu Health Service mobile clinic

 

Overview

The name Bega Garnbirringu means sickness gets better. Bega Garnbirringu Health Service (Bega) operates from the regional city of Kalgoorlie in the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia.

A mobile community engagement clinic forms an important role in Bega's health services. The clinic has a vehicle fitted out with medical equipment and is staffed by a doctor, registered nurse who has pediatric training, and an Aboriginal Health Worker.

Bega's mobile clinic team visits and works with individual communities to identify health and lifestyle issues and tailor resources and programs to meet their needs. Bega's mobile approach has given over 500 people access to information on chronic disease, healthy living, being active and tobacco cessation through community activities.

Bega aims to promote active and healthy living by:
