  • Help finding a family doctor who is experienced at treating people with a refugee or asylum seeker background in Logan, Ipswich or the Gold Coast.
  • Referrals to an appropriate GP and other health professionals where required.
  • Information and networking with other local agencies that support refugees and asylum seekers.
