Quality Chronic Disease Care Close to Home for Western NSW Indigenous People
The Integrated Team Care (ITC) Program is entering a new era to bring you a higher quality of care, closer to you, so you can access the right care, at the right place, at the right time for you.
From January 1:
Western NSW Indigenous residents attending their local AMS to access care for their chronic health condition will be provided with care through the ITC Program on-site.

Region 1 Provider: Maari Ma Health Aboriginal Corporation
Region 2 Provider: Walgett Aboriginal Medical Service
Region 3 Provider: Coonamble Aboriginal Health Service, also comprising Dubbo Regional Aboriginal Medical Service and Gilgandra Local Aboriginal Medical Service.

You asked for improvements, now we'll deliver
Region-wide consultations asked for the ITC Program to change, and the transition into improved service has already begun.
Easier access to care, as you need it
The revised ITC Program will now:
- Include care coordination services to assist you in accessing the care you need, including specialist services.
- Be delivered locally through your AMS or ACCHO, making sure this vital program has the flexibility to be able to meet the needs of you and your local community.
No disruption to your care needs
The existing service, under the Marrabinya name, continues until the end of December, 2022.
The revised ITC Program will come into full effect for you on January 1, 2023, and the transition of services is happening now, making sure that you are not disadvantaged at any time.
Talk to your AMS or service provider listed above for peace of mind regarding your Integrated Team Care.
The ITC Program has been made possible through funding provided by the Australian Government under the PHN Program.
Improving the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in Western NSW is the number one strategic goal of WNSW PHN, and we are committed to improving the health outcomes for all indigenous residents through enhanced delivery and access.
