What the Papers Say

Federal funds for health clinics

Two West Kimberley health clinics are among those bolstered by $2.7 million worth of Federal Government funding to improve safety and accessibility to services.

Broome Regional Aboriginal Medical Service has received $178,000 from the Service Maintenance Program for building repairs and refurbishments to increase security, while Derby Aboriginal Health Service Council Aboriginal Corporation was granted $106,000 to upgrade staff accommodation.

The initiative was introduced to provide vital support to clinics, accommodation and other facilities to aid the delivery of health care to indigenous people.

Member for Durack and Environment Minister Melissa Price said the SMP was an important part of the Indigenous Australians' Health Program to support improved health.

The Ord Valley Aboriginal Health Service in the East Kimberley was the other clinic in the region to receive funding, with $248,000 worth of upgrades to major occupational health and safety and security issues.
