Priority Allied Health Services

Improving health and wellbeing

Our Priority Allied Health Service delivers primary and allied health services in rural locations in the Hunter region. If you are a pensioner, Health Care Card holder or low-income earner who would not otherwise be able to access a local service you may be eligible for this service.
