Community Health

The ISLHD Community Health service provides care in a community setting, that is care provided in clinics or in people’s homes. In our area this includes general and specialist nursing care, allied health services as well as counselling services, women’s health, sexual health, chronic disease support and the diabetes service. Community Health also includes many of our health promotion and wellness programs to encourage healthy eating and regular exercise. We also run programs for refugees, people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, the Aboriginal community, families and young people.
