The Earbus Foundation of WA and the Wirraka Maya Aboriginal Health Service in Port Hedland have formalised their existing close working partnership by signing a Memorandum of Understanding.
The MOU supports the close collaboration between EFWA’s Earbus team and Wirraka Maya’s primary health care staff, particularly in relation to shared visits to Warralaong Community in the Pilbara. EFWA and WMAHSC have also run a highly successful joint ENT Clinic at their South Hedland Centre with more clinics planned for the future.
Wirraka Maya staff travel with the Earbus Team on our monthly visits to Warralong and provide continuing care between Earbus visits with their weekly clinics on site. The partnership also extends to supplying and dispensing much needed prescription medications.
Wirraka Maya has also generously made equipment available which has allowed the Earbus Team to be in multiple sites at the same time. Our thanks go to June, Karen, Melinda, Tania. Stephen and WMAHSC colleagues for their support, valuable advice and encouragement.
