Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Service works across five public hospitals, various community health centres, residential care facilities and mobile and outreach teams. Our service’s goal is to make Metro North Hospital and Health Service a national health leader in the delivery of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Services that are culturally appropriate and culturally safe.
