Chullora Medical welcomes one and all!
As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting people in the most need, Chullora Medical is equipped to tackle the crippling health conditions and inequities experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
We aim to support families and communities as they determine and lead their own solutions to achieve positive change. This means we are guided by, and answerable to, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, communities and organisations we work with.
Chullora Medical does not compete with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community organisations and their services, or seek to replace them. Our ways of working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is focused on:
TOGETHER AS PARTNERS
Building long-term and respectful partnerships by working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, communities and organisations to determine and lead their own solutions. Our vision is to be the leader in improving the physical, social, emotional, cultural, and spiritual wellbeing of Aboriginal people in collaboration with our members, patients and partners.
Working with the most vulnerable people is the responsibility of the whole organisation and as such we aim to ensure that every part of Chullora Medical is culturally accessible to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Too many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people experience unacceptable levels of disadvantage in living standards, life expectancy, education, health and employment. One of the main reasons for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people experiencing such disadvantage is culturally inaccessible services. Long standing racism and mainstream programs that do not meet their needs have been major contributing factors. However, at Chullora Medical, we are trained, caring, and accepting of all people and races.
TRAINING AND UNDERSTANDING
All our doctors undergo training and education to recognise and understand the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as well as their communities. As such, our staff are able to help us work best together.
