Aboriginal Healing Place
The healing place is located in the hospital grounds near the car park outside wards two and three. It is a place set aside in a culturally appropriate setting for Aboriginal patients and visitors for “sorry” time, which can mean a mournful time over a sick or recently passed relative or friend. Should non-Aboriginal people wish to use the healing place, we request you are respectful and mindful of Aboriginal people using or wishing to access the healing place.
Aboriginal Liaison Officers
The Aboriginal Liaison Officer can support patients and their families in understanding hospital procedures while ensuring that the care provided is appropriate to the patient’s needs. The Aboriginal Liaison Officer will arrange appropriate support services, organise links to specific relevant services in the community and may provide patient transport when suitable.
The Aboriginal Liaison Officer is available between the hours of 9:00am and 5:00pm, Monday to Friday.
