Overview


The Jericho Community Health Clinic is a nurse-led community health service. There are 369 people living in the Jericho service catchment area. The clinic is located 86 kilometres from Barcaldine Hospital and 194 kilometres from Longreach Hospital by sealed road.

  • The Jericho Bush Nursing Service was transferred to the Central West Hospital and Health Service in April 2013 and has now been integrated with other health clinics. The service acknowledges the assistance of Anglicare in transferring the service and the support of the local community that has donated equipment and supplies.
  • The clinic has increased operations to four days per week (Tuesday – Friday) and increased funding for operational staffing support.
  • Telehealth services have become fully operational. This service is now available at the clinic after receiving videoconferencing equipment in late 2014.
  • A visiting medical clinic is available every Friday (9:00am – 3:00pm) to the Jericho community.
