Indigenous Chronic Disease Clinic
The Indigenous Chronic Disease (ICD) Clinic serves as a one-stop shop for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with chronic health needs.
The following services operate through the Indigenous Chronic Disease Clinic:
- Diabetes education
- Exercise physiology
- Respiratory physician
The Clinic also offers a gentle fitness and exercise class (single or group sessions available). The class runs every Thursday at 2pm and is open to all current ICD Clinic participants, their family and friends.
How do I access the ICD Clinic?
The ICD Clinic operates on Thursdays at our Bathurst office – 102 Keppel Street.
It's free, however you will need a referral from your doctor to access diabetes education, dietetics, endocrinology or respiratory services.
For podiatry services, it's preferable for you to have a Chronic Disease Management Plan completed by your GP, with podiatry visits allocated.
A written referral stating you're medically able to participate in physical activity is required to access exercise physiology services.
