Our General Practitioners here at Galambila work closely with Aboriginal Health Workers to provide culturally relevant primary health care for the Gumbaynggirr community.
All our GP services are bulk billed. Which means you’re not out of pocket as our doctors’ bill Medicare directly.
Our GPs provide preventative health advice and arrange treatment for illness and disease using information from your medical assessment and tests, and medical guidelines and evidence.
Medical services provided by our GPs include:
Mental health assessment & care plans
Minor medical procedures
Sexual health checks
Referrals to Allied Health & Specialists
Preventative health checks and advice

Yarrawarra outreach clinic located at the cultural centre is a convenient option for families living in the Northern Beaches to see a Doctor or Aboriginal Health Worker. We deliver a weekly walk-in clinic on Tuesday morning from the Yarrawarra cultural centre. This clinic runs from 9am – 12pm.
Most non-emergency health needs can be addressed from the Yarrawarra clinic but from time to time, the doctor may ask you to attend Galambila clinic for follow up.
The clinic is located to the beach side of the cultural centre. Just look for the big Galambila flag outside.
Galambila Doctors, Nurses and Aboriginal Health Worker’s deliver a range of specific women’s health services.
We have female Doctors, Nurses and Health Workers if you prefer to discuss with our female staff. Please let our reception staff know when you book an appointment.
Even when in good health, it’s a wise idea to visit a GP at least once a year.
It is really important to make the most of your visit. You could book in for a health assessment which is a comprehensive check of your health.

If health issues are identified early, then lifestyle changes and health management can often improve the outcomes of health issues.
