New Aboriginal Health Workers join the Coffs Clinical Network, Katie Prince and Robin West

Welcome two new faces to our Coffs Aboriginal Health team

Mar 14, 2024

Two new faces have joined the Mid North Coast Local Health District Coffs Clinical Network’s Aboriginal Health Team.

Robin West and Katie Prince’s recruitment as Aboriginal Health Workers will support facilitation and build engagement between health professionals and the Aboriginal community.

Working in the Nambucca Valley Aboriginal community, Robin’s role will be important to achieve holistic and patient-centred care. She will predominantly work in collaboration with staff and patients at Macksville District Hospital as well as partners such as the local Aboriginal Medical Services and primary health providers.

Katie’s role will fill the gap in support for the Aboriginal community in the paediatric and midwifery space, mainly located at Coffs Harbour Health Campus.

Mid North Coast Local Health District thanks Robin and Katie for joining our healthcare family, as we work towards reducing the rate of premature mortality and chronic disease in Aboriginal people in working towards Closing the Gap by delivering culturally safe and supported health services to the Aboriginal community.
