Jurrugk Aboriginal Health Service

 

Description

The Jurrugk Aboriginal Health Service provides an outreach service to the communities of Ngallagunda (Gibb River Station), Kupungarri (Mt Barnett), Imintji, Dodnun, Kandiwel, Yulumbu and Teralantji in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia.

Jurrugk means 'coming together' referring to the collection of remote Aboriginal communities along the Gibb River Road.

The service has two registered nurses located in the communities of Ngallagunda and Kupungarri who travel to the communities of Imintji and Dodnun weekly to provide health care services. The organisation works in partnership with the Derby Aboriginal Health Service (DAHS) to raise the profile of health as a profession, encouraging local Aboriginal people to take up employment in the health service and offering support for people along the Gibb River Road to pursue training in a health related field. DAHS works with the Royal Flying Doctor Service to provide a monthly doctor visit to each of the Jurrugk communities.

The Jurrugk Aboriginal Health Service is a member of the Kimberley Aboriginal Medical Service Council (KAMSC).
