Inala Indigenous Health Service
Welcome to the Southern 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.

|Nov 2016||Building stage 2
||The big news this month is that our new building is being constructed. We had a smoking ceremony and this month will host a 'turning of the first sod' with representatives from Qld Health and the Qld State Government. By Christmas, we should be able to see an outline of the new structure. Exciting times!|
||Demolition has begun!||
The blocks next door to our health service on Brolga St have been cleared to make way for stage 2 of our health service. This building will double our size, and allow us to deliver a wider range of health services. It will also host the community and research team, who are currently located in rented premises in the Inala Plaza.
