As a community controlled Aboriginal Health Service, we receive funding from the Commonwealth and State Governments to provide health services specifically to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people.

Patient eligibility

Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people and their direct family members are eligible to use our services.

Confirmation of Aboriginality is required for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander clients.

If you don’t have a Confirmation of Aboriginality from an organisation with a common seal, then we will accept the following documents while the confirmation of Aboriginality process is underway. Interim documents include:

  • Medical records from another Aboriginal Medical Service
  • Your confirmation of Aboriginality application
  • A letter of support from an Aboriginal organisation

Non-Aboriginal direct family members can access our service if an Aboriginal family member is already a client of Galambila. Direct family members can include non-Aboriginal spouses, de-facto partners and children in the family’s care. Supporting evidence such as a Medicare card or a power bill may be required.

You will need an Aboriginal family member to support and sign the new client application.

We reserve the right to review patient eligibility if the requirements of our stated eligibility process are not met.

  • Your Medicare card
  • Your health concession card, if you have one
  • Your pensioner concession card, if you have one
  • Bring along all your medication/s you are currently on
  • Photo identification

Need assistance getting to our clinic?

We have a transport service available to active clients to assist getting between home and Galambila. You can book in for this service when you make your appointment with us.

We provide this service as far North as Corindi and Red Rock, South to Urunga and West as far as the Ulong/Lowanna area.

We are able to accommodate for Elders and also have safety equipment for babies. If you are requiring any safety equipment (car seats etc) please give our reception staff as much notice as possible so we can make all transport bookings and arrangements.
