As part of the medical team in Fitzroy Valley, remote community visits may be required. Many find this opportunity as exciting, satisfying, others confronting. Regardless of expectations, these medical visits are essential to the health and well-being of the people of the Fitzroy Valley. Awareness of indigenous health prior to arrival is important.
Fitzroy Crossing town comprises less than half the population of the Valley. The remainder is spread around surrounding communities. Communities are often based on family groups or language groups. There are 4 language groups in the Valley. Bunaba (traditional owners), Gooniyandi (river people), Wangkatjunka & Walmarjarri (desert people). The population throughout is very transient, but greatly assisted by computerised medical records (Communicare). The nurses work in partnership with the Aboriginal communities, organisations, other health service providers, Government Departments, and agencies to provide Primary Health Care in remote communities.
