The Aboriginal Health Television network (AHTV) has been inundated with questions regarding COVID-19. To help answer them and fulfil our goal which is to assist you in increasing the health knowledge of your communities, we have produced 25 videos about COVID-19 to play on AHTV screens. These videos address the most frequently asked questions and are presented by Dr Norman Swan.

Because you are currently a part of the AHTV network you will have access to the AHTV Coronavirus Resource Centre. We’ve uploaded the 25 videos to there so that staff and patients can access them online. If you, your staff or family members have any questions which aren’t covered please send them directly to me and Dr Swan will try to answer them. We are filming these updates weekly.

Below is a link to the website should you wish to access more information:

We also recommend you listen to the ABC’s “Coronacast” podcast hosted by Norman. This podcast breaks down the latest news and research to help you understand how the world is living through a pandemic:

WAMS is a non-profit organisation which relies on public support from individuals, community groups, corporations, trusts and foundations as well as government funding to continue to improve the health and well-being of our clients and the community.

In 1986 we opened our doors to the Walgett community. The Board of Directors moved a resolution to treat ALL people, and that has been the case since. Currently, 40% of our clients are non-Aboriginal.

WAMS is the first Aboriginal Medical Service in NSW to be accredited (1998) with the (national) Quality Improvement Council (QIC) / (state) Quality Management Service (QMS) for organisational operations. WAMS is also accredited for its General Practice facilities with General Practice Accreditation (GPA) Plus.

In 2013, WAMS underwent its fifth cycle of accreditation with both agencies.

In 2014 WAMS was one of the first Aboriginal Medical Services in New South Wales to achieve Dental Practice Accreditation through the Quality Innovation Performance (QIP) group.
