Ngangganawili Aboriginal Health Service

Welcome to the Ngangganawili Aboriginal Health Service Community (NAHS) website.

 Ngangganawili Aboriginal Health Service (NAHS)  was formed in 1993 to provide health and medical services to the residents of the Wiluna shire and other people from outlying areas, the mining industry, the pastoral stations and tourists visiting our town.

 NAHS operates a GP Medical Centre on all business days of the year.  The Medical Centre is staffed daily by one GP, a Receptionist, a Patient Transport Driver, 3 Registered Nurses (RN), and an Aboriginal Health Worker.  NAHS also employs Paramedics who provide the ambulance service to support Accident and Emergency services outside normal operating hours.

 NAHS clinical service delivery also includes a Child and Maternal Health Nurse and an Aboriginal Enrolled Nurse who provide early childhood and school aged children’s health services from NAHS Medical Centre and at the Wiluna Remote Community School.  NAHS provides pharmacy services within its Medical Centre; pharmacy services are managed by a consultant Pharmacist from Hilditch Pharmacy.

 NAHS Social and Emotional Wellbeing team (SEWB) currently includes a male and female Substance Misuse/Mental Health Counsellors, and a Senior Counsellor engaged in delivering programs required to meet the needs of our community. 

 As an Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation (ACCHO) NAHS provides services in ways determined by the local community that best suit their requirements, and in a culturally secure way and setting.  Upon engagement at NAHS, all new non-indigenous staff receive cultural sensitivity training from local Aboriginal elders.  In alignment with Aboriginal culture, NAHS provides a holistic approach to its health care delivery.
