North Coast Aboriginal Corporation for Community Health (NCACCH) has traditionally held the Well Persons Health Check Day (WPHCD) event in May of each year, with the location alternating bi-annually between the Sunshine Coast and Gympie.
The day offers great activities, entertainment and interactive information stalls that community, partners and stakeholders enjoy.
What does this mean for health checks?
Instead of doing the basic health checks at the WPHCD, we are encouraging the Gympie and surrounding areas to attend the Gympie AMS to get your 715 health check completed. This means community will be able to get a comprehensive Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander health check assessment with the AMS team and proceed to have continuity of care for any follow up appointments needed. If you are wanting to know more, or would like to register with the AMS, our helpful team can assist you with this on the day.
Please Note: Sunshine Coast clients will not be able to register and attend the NCACCH Gympie AMS for their 715 health check. They are encouraged to attend their normal Doctor on the Sunshine Coast.
