We proudly serve the community of Wiluna, WA.
Ngangganawili Aboriginal Community Controlled Health and Medical Services Organization trading as the Ngangganawili Aboriginal Health Services (NAHS) was incorporated as an Aboriginal Corporation in 1993. NAHS is an Aboriginal community controlled organisation that has been providing holistic and culturally secure health services to the Aboriginal people of the Wiluna and surrounding remote communities since 1993. The 14 members of NAHS Board of Directors are all Aboriginal people; two directors represent each of the Aboriginal Communities in the Wiluna region.
The Shire of Wiluna covers an area of some 184,000 square kilometres, which is predominantly a mining and pastoral area. The town of Wiluna is the principal centre in the Shire, and there are also a number of surrounding mining villages and Aboriginal communities. The township of Wiluna is approximately 949 kilometres northeast of Perth and is situated on the edge of the desert at the gateway to the Canning Stock Route and Gunbarrel Highway. Meekatharra, 185 Km west of Wiluna is the closest town. The road between Wiluna and Meekatharra is unsealed and closed to traffic after moderate and heavy rainfall. A sealed (all weather) highway runs from Wiluna 530 Km south to Kalgoorlie. Towns north or east, Halls Creek and Alice Springs, are both 1,800 Km from Wiluna
In 1995, the Department of Health WA licensed NAHS to operate its Nursing Post in Wiluna. For the past 21 year NAHS has been the sole health services provider to all Aboriginal and non-indigenous residents and visitors in the Wiluna shire and wider region. From 1995 to 2013, NAHS operated its Medical Centre from WA Department of Health owned property in Wiluna. In 2012 the State and Commonwealth Governments jointly funded a purpose built Health Campus in Wiluna. In 2013 NAHS took ownership and moved its services to the new Health Campus.
The GP Medical Centre operates in Wiluna, and outreach clinical services are delivered to the Kutkabubba
