Northern Health

Aboriginal Support Unit

Northern Health has a committed Aboriginal Support Unit which aims to culturally support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients and carers through the hospital journey. Patients can expect to see the Aboriginal Hospital Liaison Officer if they request a visit, during their hospital admission. Patients can have the AHLO present when treating teams are speaking with them about their medical condition. AHLO can advocate, liaise and provide support throughout their admission, including contacting family and carers at Patients request. The AHLO can also assist with internal and external referrals for services that the patient may require.
