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.

||Research projects galore!
||We currently have 21 research projects either underway or in the planning phase. This is a remarkable effort from a single health service and research team. Every project has been given the go-ahead by our Community Jury. This his bodes well for the future health care of our patients and also of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples around Australia.
||Community garden first pickings
Visitors will have noticed our small-but-much-loved garden outside our waiting room. This is the result of our community garden committee, a lot of sweat and surprisingly few tears. Uncle Graham Mason ceremonially picked the first produce, and our dietitian/nutritionists have already used the pickings for healthy food education...yum!
||Medical students give thumbs up
Thanks to all patients who allow medical students to sit in on their consultations. This year one of our research projects is interviewing these UQ, Griffith and Bond University students 'before and after' their placement. In short, they love being here. As one said recently, "Every student should do a placement here."

Although care is taken, this site, and links from it to third-party sites, may possibly contain the names or images of people who have passed away, which may sadden and distress some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
