The Derby Aboriginal Health Service clinic is open five days per week, plus one evening clinic. Monthly visits are made to the frail aged hostel. Yearly programs are offered for flu vaccinations, and trachoma and retinal screening is also provided.
Allied health programs include women’s and child health, sexual health, social and emotional well being, health education, diabetes, antenatal, renal and youth advocacy and support.
Regular doctor’s clinics are provided to Pandanus Park and Jarlmadangah Buru communities and the partnership with RFDS and Jurrugk Aboriginal Health Service (JAHS) enables DAHS to service communities along the Gibb River Road.
DAHS also works collaboratively with the Kimberley Aboriginal Health Service Council (KAMSC) School of Health Studies to recruit suitable students to undertake studies in Aboriginal primary health care work which leads to employment as an Aboriginal Health Worker. DAHS has two representatives that sit on the KAMS Council and is an affiliate of both the West Australian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (WAACHO) and National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO).
