Standing Strong Together Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Award

Each year RACGP Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health presents the Standing Strong Together Award to any Fellow or member of the RACGP and any Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person who have worked together to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Nominations are open to all Fellows and members of the RACGP and to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia.

The Award winner will receive a commemorative trophy which will be presented at GP16. The RACGP will fund the cost of the winners' (two representatives) return economy class airfare and accommodation to attend the Academic Session, Fellowship and Awards Ceremony at GP16.

The 2015 Standing Strong Together Award winning partnership is Dr Elizabeth Marles of the Hornsby General Practice Unit and Ms Sue Pinckham, a Biripi woman from the local community. Together they have drawn the local Aboriginal community and local health services into consultations that have resulted in the establishment of the Bungee Bidgel Aboriginal Health Clinic. The Clinic aims to provide supported holistic care which links the acute, secondary and primary health sectors and extends community and social supports to local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

For futher informtion about the Bungee Bidgel Aboriginal Health Clinic visit the January edition of Good Practice.
