Welcome to the South East Queensland Centre of Excellence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care. Also known as Inala Indigenous Health Service, we are a Queensland Health service for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Located in Inala, 18 km South West of Brisbane CBD, our clinic is staffed by GPs, nurses, allied health and Aboriginal health workers, and visiting medical specialists.
Our service is spread over four local sites: Our main clinic is the new building at 37 Wirraway Pde. We still use our previous clinic at 64 Wirraway Pde for allied health consultations. We also run a small outreach service (Elorac Place) for women's and children's health in Ellen Grove. Our research and community team are located in the Inala Plaza, but we do not see patients there. Additionally, we provide a monthly fly-in medical service to Cunnamulla, 750 km west of Brisbane.

||Aboriginal diggers' memorial
Dr Noel Hayman is a proud co-patron (along with The Honorable Quentin Bryce) of a project to build a memorial in Brisbane's Anzac Square. This statue will commemorate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander service men and women who served in all of Australia's armed conflicts. More information at www.atsidmcq.com and we encourage you to consider a donation.
||Ear infection trial
Australia has helpful guidelines for how to treat middle-ear infections in Aboriginal children in remote communities (usually with antibiotics) and for non-Aboriginal children (usually no antibiotics), but we lack evidence as to whether we should use antibiotics for Aboriginal children living in cities like Brisbane. We are about to start a 2-year trial to answer this question, and will offer this to parents of children aged 2-16 years who attend our service with an ear infection.
|11 Oct 2014||'No Advertising Please' campaign launch||Three of our doctors (Justin, Geoff and Warren) were part of a group of 25 people who launched a campaign aimed at providing information for doctors to discourage them from inviting pharmaceutical sales representatives ('drug reps') into their surgery. The 'No Advertising Please' campaign was started by Dr Justin Coleman and featured on television, radio and almost 50 media articles around Australia and internationally.|
