Murrumbidgee Local Health District acknowledges the traditional owners of the land on which we live and work. We pay respect to past and present Elders of this land: the Wiradjuri, Yorta Yorta, Baraba Baraba, Wemba Wemba and Nari Nari peoples.
Aboriginal Health Unit
The Aboriginal Health unit is responsible for promotion of Aboriginal Health and the provision of Aboriginal Health services across the Murrumbidgee Local Health District. It provides programs and services that are culturally appropriate and accessible to Aboriginal people and Communities. The Aboriginal Health unit also works with mainstream staff to enable them to more effectively plan and deliver high quality and accessible health services to Aboriginal people and Communities.
As well as providing a service to inpatients and clients individually, there are also a number of programs that Aboriginal Health staff within the Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD) are trained in and responsible for implementing.
Aboriginal Patient Experience Survey
Aboriginal adults admitted to hospital in 2022 will have the opportunity to provide feedback on their hospital experience.
If you are admitted to hospital in 2022, you may receive a copy of the survey in the mail around two months after the end of your hospital stay.
This is your chance to tell us how we can make hospital care better for you. We want to hear about your experiences. Are there areas that you think need improving? Did something impress you?
Your responses will be combined with all others and the results will be sent to the Local Health Districts that run our hospitals, including the local Aboriginal Health Unit, so that improvements can be made, and they can learn from the things that worked well.
All information you provide will be completely confidential and your personal information will not go back to your hospital, Aboriginal Medical Service or your GP.
This is part of a state-wide program to improve the quality of care and hospital safety for Aboriginal patients.
If you are sent a survey by the Bureau of Health Information, please fill it in. For more information on the survey, visit the Bureau of Health Information website.
