About the Service

Freo Street Doctor is a mobile medical health service that provides a visible, easily accessible and non-judgemental primary health care service to marginalised, disadvantaged and homeless people in our community. The service aims to care for those members of our community who for any reasons may not access mainstream general practice. The medical practice is accredited according to RACGP standards.

The service provides over 2000 consultations annually. Over 20% of patients visiting the Freo Street Doctor identify as homeless and nearly 45% of patients self-identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander.

The Freo Street Doctor team is staffed by General Practitioners, registered nurses, outreach workers, Indigenous health workers and Social Workers. Freo Street Doctor provides a challenging and rewarding environment for health professionals.
