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 ICD Clinic operates every Thursday, providing the following services:
- 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 is located at Marathon Health's Bathurst office – 102 Keppel Street. The ICD Clinic is free or bulk billed, however you will need a referral from your doctor to access diabetes education, dietetics, endocrinology or respiratory services. Podiatry services require an Enhanced Primary Care Plan with podiatry visits allocated, while a written referral stating you are medically able to participate in physical activity is required to access exercise physiology services.

Marathon Health’s response to COVID-19
A message from our CEO
We are watching the COVID-19 situation develop in our communities and our thoughts are with impacted communities.
Following advice from the Australian Government about physical distancing, we will cease face to face appointments and outreach services, and transition what services we can to virtual servicing via video and phone.
These changes will be effective from Friday 20 March at 5pm, until further notice.
During this time, our two key aims have been to maintain important health services to isolated and vulnerable people, while keeping our staff and their families safe.
Our After Hours GP clinic and telephone services will continue to operate as normal. Please visit After Hours to find out more information.
What this means
- Our physical office locations will be temporarily closed; however, staff will be working from virtual locations, and can still be reached via email or mobile during regular business hours
- For specific services, you may able to speak to your regular staff contact from the comfort of your own home. Our team will be in contact with all clients to ensure the transition to telephone/video delivery is as seamless as possible
- For those services where we are unable to offer telephone/video facilities, one of our team will be in touch to discuss alternative arrangements and reschedule for a later date
We understand this may cause stress in an already uncertain time, and we will endeavour to communicate and provide alternative options wherever possible.
