Galangoor Duwalami Primary Healthcare Service is a community controlled health service and has 3 governance systems. These systems guide the strategic growth of the service and ensure community input and well as ensuring legislative requirements are being met. These systems are corporate, clinical and community.
Corporate governance underpinned by Office of the Registrar of Indigenous Corporations; clinical governance set by national clinical standards including the Royal Australian General Practice Guidelines, the Primary and Clinical Care Manual and the Chronic Disease Guidelines; and community governance is set by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and members.
As a community controlled organisation, Galangoor Duwalami is accountable to its members and to the community. Through the membership, board members (elected and skilled based) are held accountable to deliver and ensure corporate governance systems and clinical service delivery are of a high standard.
By developing and maintaining robust governance systems, Galangoor Duwalami has been able to achieve Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited (AGPAL) accreditation and Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine, Queensland Rural Medicine Education (QRME) accreditation for our clinics on the Fraser Coast.
