Refugee Health

Coffs Harbour Health Campus Refugee Health (new arrival) Clinic

The clinic introduces newly arrived refugees to health services in New South Wales (NSW).

Health assessments do not affect residency status in Australia, this service is provided to improve the quality of life for each refugee starting a new life on the North Coast.
