What is available?

Primary Health Tasmania has commissioned two providers to deliver this service, which aims to provide comprehensive medical assessments and necessary treatments to newly arriving humanitarian entrants during the initial settlement period of six to nine months from the date of their arrival to Tasmania.

Services include:

  • immunisation catch ups
  • comprehensive health assessments and initial medical services
  • support the transition of patients into mainstream general practice after discharge from commissioned service.

Who is eligible?

Newly arrived humanitarian entrants to Tasmania.

Where is it available?

The service is delivered from one general practice in Hobart and three in Launceston (comprised Northern Suburbs Medical Service, Kings Meadows Medical Centre and Newstead Medical).

Who can make a referral?

Referrals must made by the Humanitarian Settlement Program (HSP) service provider for Tasmania, the Migrant Resource Centre Tasmania.

How much does it cost?

Humanitarian entrants are bulk billed for all clinical services until they are fully immunised, usually six to nine months.
