The GPs provide culturally safe services within a comprehensive primary health care framework. The position works within a multidisciplinary team and is integral to ensuring clinical leadership, cultural integrity and high standards of clinical care to optimise the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal people.


As the largest Aboriginal community-controlled health organisation in the Northern Territory, Congress employs a large team of GPs across our 13 clinics in the Central Australian region.  We operate clinics and health centres in several remote communities in Central Australia including Mutitjulu Health Service, Ntaria and Wallace Rockhole Health Service, Santa Teresa Health Service and Utju Health Service.
