Such professionals include Doctors, Pharmacists, Nurse Practitioners, Allied Health staff (Physiotherapist, Speech Therapists, Dietitians, Occupational Therapists) and Registered Nurses.  All these primary care professionals are available at Albury Wodonga Health in the admitted and non-admitted space.

Primary care involves a wide range of health care, all ages, patients of all socio-economic backgrounds, preventative health and patients with acute and chronic conditions.

Continuity is a key principle underpinning the primary care model.  Patients usually prefer to consult the same pratitioner for their health care needs and collaboration between primary care providers to ensure holistic patient care is very desirable.
