About

Providing for the community since 1996

Since 1996, Yerin has been providing primary health care to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community on the Central Coast of NSW. Yerin is a community controlled Aboriginal Health Service and provides health care services in a culturally safe environment.

Yerin is the supporting organisation for the Eleanor Duncan Aboriginal Health Centre, a medical centre for the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. Yerin is responsible for securing funding for the Eleanor Duncan Aboriginal Health Centre and providing the centre with administration support. This allows the staff of the Eleanor Duncan Aboriginal Health Centre to focus on providing quality, culturally appropriate health services to our community.

The Eleanor Duncan Aboriginal Health Centre provides medical services to our community through our Doctors, Primary Health Nurses, Aboriginal Health Practitioners, Psychologists, Early Childhood Nurses and Mid-Wives and a range of Allied Health Specialists.
