Our clinics

The NSW Refugee Health Service (RHS) currently runs General Practice clinics one day per week in Liverpool, Blacktown and Auburn, and monthly clinics in Fairfield and Mt Druitt. The primary aim of the clinics is to provide recently arrived refugees with a comprehensive medical assessment by a medical practitioner with a special interest in refugee health, and with the benefits of professional health care interpreters. Many of those referred do not yet have their own GP. Clinics are free so clients without Medicare can access them.

RHS provides referrals to outpatient clinics and other services (e.g. dental clinics, women's health), and advocates for timely access where possible. Refugees who attend are encouraged and often assisted to seek the services of an appropriate GP for ongoing care.

A General Practitioner and a Registered Nurse from the Refugee Health Service staff each of the clinics. A comprehensive health assessment and investigations can be done, with copies of results provided to the patient and/or their GP.

Medicare cards are not essential but referral options for individuals who are Medicare ineligible may be limited.
