Yulu-Burri-Ba has expanded their services over the years to better improve our communities
The Yulu-Burri-Ba health service began operations in 1984, with a doctor and a nurse making weekly visits to Dunwich on North Stradbroke Island. Since that time, the health services provided have rapidly expanded with Yulu-Burri-Ba now delivering a comprehensive co-ordinated community health service on the island and in Brisbane’s bayside suburbs.
With the realisation of the need for expansion to the mainland, Yulu-Burri-Ba opened a second clinic at Capalaba on the 28th of November, 2011. To achieve its goal to continue to improve access to comprehensive primary health care services in our region, in January 2016, Yulu-Burri-Ba opened a further clinic in Wynnum.
Yulu-Burri-Ba now has an island base and two mainland access points to deliver a full range of medical and allied health services including dental services from our Dunwich and Capalaba clinics.
Yulu-Burri-Ba’s philosophy encompasses an Aboriginal perspective of health, to not only focus on ill-health but to cover all issues that affect the community. In 2017, the range of social health services provided were expanded to include family well-being services.
Yulu-Burri-Ba is exceptionally proud of the service and support provided to its clients, now totalling over 5000.
Yulu-Burri-Ba’s aim is to provide a safe, friendly, confidential and culturally appropriate Aboriginal primary health care services, in line with community needs.
