Sharing & Learning Circles

Nepean-Blue Mountains Medicare Local (NBMML) coordinated Aboriginal Sharing & Learning Circles within our local community. These 'Circles' were held to work with our Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander communities to gain insights into their health needs and establish health priorities specific to each of the four Local Government Areas that sit within the NBMPHN region. 

Without the engagement, participation and commitment of the Aboriginal community locally, as well as the broader community and local service providers, these Circles would not have been possible. We thank everyone who was so willing to be a part of this process.

Reports have been compiled from the Circles held in each LGA. It is important to acknowledge the collaboration that took place between Nepean-Blue Mountains Medicare Local, Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District (the two lead agencies), the Blue Mountains Aboriginal Health Coalition and Hawkesbury District Health Service to enable these reports to be produced.
