Apunipima Cape York Health Council acknowledges and pays respect to Elders, both past and present and all generations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples now and into the future as the Traditional Owners of this land.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this website may contain images, voices or names of people who may be deceased.

With COVID-19 now in several Cape communities we will be limiting our face-to-face consultations to help keep our staff and community safe. This means some of our regular services may be delayed or unavailable. Please be patient with our staff while we adjust to the new processes.
Do you or your child need to be seen by a Doctor or Health Care Worker TODAY? Please follow the directions below:
  • Do you or your child have severe pain, shortness of breath or a serious injury? Go to the QLD Health Clinic or the hospital (and don’t forget your mask!)
  • Do you or your child have COVID-19 symptoms? Call your community's Health Care Centre.
  • Do you or your child need to see a GP and it's not urgent? - Call the Apunipima Primary Health Centre or your local clinic and we'll book you a telephone appointment.
  • Do you or your child need to be vaccinated for COVID-19? Get your COVID-19 needle through Queensland Health (Call 07 3497 3442)
