Aboriginal Medical Service Co-operative Limited

36 Turner Street, Redfern, NSW

The Aboriginal Medical Service Co-operative Limited (AMS Redfern) was established in 1971 to provide healthcare services to the local Aboriginal community in and around Redfern to overcome the neglect and racism Aboriginal people were experiencing in mainstream health services. AMS Redfern pioneered the concept of Aboriginal community controlled healthcare and is now a key Aboriginal community organisation from which most AMSs around NSW have stemmed. AMS Redfern offers a range of medical services including a general medical clinic, medical specialist services, allied health, mental health, drug and alcohol programs, public health and a dental clinic.
