The aim of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Check (MBS item 715) is to help ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people receive primary health care matched to their needs, by encouraging early detection, diagnosis and intervention for common and treatable conditions that cause morbidity and early mortality. The health assessment is an annual service and covers the full age spectrum.
The NCACCH Polo Shirt (blue/green pictured below) will be given to every NCACCH client who completes a 715 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Check between 1st July 2018 and 30th June 2019.
If you don’t have a GP, you can download a list of NCACCH Approved Practices where you will be bulk billed for your visit.
For any further information or assistance feel free to contact Maria Mitchell-Brown, Indigenous Outreach worker on 5346 9800 or for more information about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health checks you can download the MBS Item 715 Fact Sheet.
