Refugee Health Connect

Refugee Health Connect (RHC) is a partnership between Brisbane South PHN, Brisbane North PHN, Mater Health Services, and Metro South Hospital and Health Service aimed to support primary care in working with people of refugee backgrounds. RHC operates in Brisbane South and Brisbane North. 

By providing education and support, RHC builds the skills and capabilities of primary care to manage the care of refugee families in a culturally and clinically appropriate manner.

Practices are provided with:

  • peer-to-peer education from clinical leads—a GP and practice nurse who have extensive experience in refugee health
  • in-house practice support and guidance
  • cultural awareness training
  • clinical education events
  • resources for clinical and administration staff.

Refugee Health Connect is also a one point of contact for all aspects of refugee health. RHC can assist you with navigating the refugee health space and linking people from refugee backgrounds to appropriate providers in order to improve health access and engagement.
