About Country Health Connect – Tintinara and Coonalpyn

Our Country Health Connect clinics at Coonalpyn and Tintinara offer a range of valuable nursing services to the local community.

These services are provided by our Registered Nurses (RN) and Enrolled Nurses (ENs) who can provide care to you at our clinics, or in your home.

This includes services such as wound care, PICC line care, post-acute care such as drain management, supra public catheter care and injectable medications.

Community members also have access to a range of specialist services available from visiting nurses, including our Continence Nurse, Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurse, Diabetes Nurse Educator, McGrath Breast Care Nurse, Palliative Care Nurse Practitioners, and our Palliative Care Team.

Non-Aboriginal consumers over the age of 65, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander consumers over the age of 50, also have access to a range of healthy aging services such as transport, personal care, social support, domestic assistance and meals.

How to make an appointment

From Monday 22 January 2024, the Coonalpyn and Tintinara clinics will transition from a drop-in service to an appointment-only service.

This will ensure community members can access care when and when they need it, as our nurses are often travelling within the community providing care.

The clinic will be open in accordance with community needs, for example, if there is a clinical need for you to receive injectable medications on a Saturday. Home based services will continue to be provided by appointment. You can nominate to access care in-clinic or at your home.

To book an appointment, please contact our Country Health Connect office on (08) 8535 6800 during business hours (Monday to Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm).

A referral is essential to access clinic services.

You can be referred to the clinic by a medical practitioner, such as your GP, or you can self-refer, meaning you call us directly to discuss your needs before making an appointment.
