The TAIHS primary health service provides a range of medical and clinical services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in Townsville and the surrounding region. 

Our health services are provided by a dedicated team of Doctors, Indigenous Health Professionals, Nurses, Visiting Specialists, Allied Health Professionals, Administration and Transport personnel.

Your health is important to you and your family, it’s also important to us. 

TAIHS encourages all patients to see their Doctor for their annual Health Check (715).

A 715 Health Check takes approximately 45 minutes to complete and is done by a culturally appropriate Health Worker and your regular Doctor.  A Health Check includes a general physical assessment, a blood sugar test, pulse and blood pressure test, pathology, and screening for skin, vision and hearing.

Consultation Costs

TAIHS is a bulk billing practice therefore services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients do not pay when they see a Doctor. A fee may apply for work or sport related medicals and for International overseas visitors.

Transport Services

TAIHS also offers a complementary transport service to enable patients without transport to access medical and clinical care as needed.  Patient transport is available to access the Townsville and Regional outreach clinics.  Please call 4759 4000 to arrange transport if it is required.


Our clinic is fully accredited under the RACGP / AGPAL Standards and International Standards Organisation (ISO).
