Established in 1978, Broome Regional Aboriginal Medical Service (BRAMS) was the first remote Aboriginal Medical Service in Western Australia. Our commitment to the core principles of Aboriginal self-determination, access, equity, empowerment and reconciliation is unwavering. As an Aboriginal community-owned and controlled health service, we strive to offer a holistic, culturally appropriate approach in all our services.

Our vision is one of Healthy People, Strong Communities, and Bright Futures.

We are experiencing a phase of expansion, with our client base doubling over the past three years. Our team comprises 15 dedicated Aboriginal health workers who play a crucial role in our efforts to align with our care model and work cohesively with the rest of our team.
