90 second statement speech - Yulu-Burri-Ba health clinic
Today I want to talk about a very special addition to the Bayside community in my electorate of Bonner.

Just recently, Yulu-Burri-Ba Aboriginal Corporation for Community Health opened a new clinic in Wynnum. I had the pleasure of touring the facility with Minister for Rural Health, Senator the Hon Fiona Nash. We got to see their wonderful work firsthand and I thank them for their hospitality.

They have been one of the great success stories in the field of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. For over 25 years they’ve provided primary health care and other health services on North Stradbroke Island.

In that time they’ve continued to grow and I’m thrilled to see them expand their services to Wynnum. They offer GP services, after hours care, home visits where needed, a transport service and much more that will benefit so many lives.

Yulu-Burri-Ba has achieved so many positive outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. I congratulate the team for all their hard work and dedication. They should be incredibly proud of everything they’ve accomplished.

It’s easy to see the enormous benefit their new clinic will be to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community on Brisbane’s Bayside. I look forward to paying them another visit in future and wish them every success going forward.
