Orange Aboriginal Medical Service or OAMS is making a difference to the health of Aboriginal families and the wider community of Central Western NSW. OAMS started in 2005, as a self determined Aboriginal organisation with a vision to be a leader in health and in the community.

OAMS governance structure is commended by Commonwealth Health and provides flexibility to take advantage of opportunities, and that means OAMS can deliver health outcomes with a difference! The GP-led medical service is complimented by integrated on-going care with other health professionals, and supported by appointment booking, patient transport and follow up.

A whole of life approach to health, OAMS provides health services from antenatal, dental and a range of health programs, all delivered in a culturally sensitive manner. With a large number of clients, plus the majority of Aboriginal people in Orange using the service, OAMS is helping to ‘Close the Gap’ in Indigenous health.

Noticeboard

IMPORTANT – We request that all clients please take note of the following temporary changes in place at OAMS:

As of Tuesday 24th March, we are adopting some new, temporary procedures in an effort to make your visit to the doctor as safe as possible. These are precautionary only and in line with the Department of Health guidelines.

The majority of patient appts will be via telephone. Patients should expect to receive a call from their GP at the planned time. It will then be at the discretion of your GP if you are required to come into OAMS.

Aboriginal Health Checks are being delayed at this time, our nurses will be still seeing patients for routine immunisations, but please be aware we may ask questions about your health prior to your visit.

All visitors and patients are advised that OAMS front entrances will be locked. Upon arrival- please refer to the signage at the front of each building for instructions.

Some patients may be asked to put on a  face mask on arrival. Please do not share face masks, they are single use only and have the potential to spread viruses to other people.

If you have any questions please call our reception team on (02) 6393 9000

In the meantime please continue do your part to prevent the spread and look after yourself and community where possible. We will endeavor to keep you up to date with any changes.
