NPA Family and Community Services ATSI Corporation officially opened the service in August 2015 and has continued growing during the past years.  We have continued to implement a culturally appropriate model of care for general practice services, which has increased in patient numbers.

The Injinoo Primary Health Care General Practice is a community controlled and driven health service for the Northern Peninsula Area (NPA) Community. We implement care provided by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioner or Health Worker as the first point of care policy before you are seen by the doctor or other visiting services. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioner or Health Worker identifies all patient care needs for your visit and discusses outstanding checks that are due, in addition to what you have come for. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioner or Health Worker will help explain this to the doctor. This is to make sure you feel comfortable and satisfied with the doctors consult.

 As a patient you can ask questions about any information you are unable to understand on our practice information sheet and there is good communication about heath needs.

Management of patient health information

Communication Policy

Staff will take your details and interrupt a consultation if the problem is urgent. If not, the doctor will call you back as soon as possible. 

Reduced Medication Cost

A big focus for the team has been supporting patients with completing PIP and CTG registrations which allow for reduced medication costs when visiting places outside of the NPA. Staff have also taken over completing Patient Travel Requests for the Injinoo Community.

The MOU with TCHHS regarding the coordination of services in the NPA was finalised and signed in late 2017. This has seen an increase in services visiting the GP including regular maternal health, child health and chronic disease clinics. The endocrinologist and Deadly Ears will also begin visits to Injinoo.

In March 2017, NPA Family and Community Services received full accreditation from AGPAL against the RACGP 4th Edition Standards for General Practice. This represents the organisation’s commitment about providing high quality, safe and effective care to our patients. In addition, the accreditation ensures the service has adequate policies and procedures in place to ensure timely care and advice of patients and to support continuity of care with other service providers. 

Information Technology

From the accreditation process, we also identified areas of continuous improvement in Information Technology which we are continuing to work towards. In addition, we have implemented a regular compliance audit to monitor compliance with accreditation and legislative requirements. We also incorporate national KPI data into quarterly reporting to staff and the Board of Directors to inform service delivery.

Continuous Quality Improvement

Injinoo Primary Health Care strives to improve our clinic by listening, actioning and improving customer feedback and satisfaction. The clinic takes pride in Continuous Quality Improvement.
