ATSI Health Assessments
This health assessment is aimed at ensuring that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people receive primary health care matched to their needs, by encouraging early detection, diagnosis and intervention for common and treatable conditions that cause morbidity and early mortality  in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It includes an assessment of the patient’s health, including their physical, psychological and social wellbeing. It also assesses what preventive health care, education and other assistance should be offered to the patient to improve their health and wellbeing.

You can have an ATSI Health Assessment every 9 to 12 months. It is a free assessment. After your health check, your doctor can refer you to up to 10 free follow-up services if needed, such as a specialist or another health service counsellor.
