Specialised Primary Healthcare & Wellbeing for People Experiencing Homelessness in Cairns
Wheels of Wellness provides a spectrum of services including primary and allied healthcare, wellbeing support, and training, delivered by our multidisciplinary team consisting of doctors, a registered nurse, an Indigenous Health Practitioner, and a podiatrist.
We specialise in health assessments, GP management plans, mental healthcare plans, sexual health, follow-up care post hospital admission, medication compliance, vaccinations, health education, and promotion.
Our mission is to deliver specialised healthcare and wellbeing services for Cairns’ most vulnerable, offering a sanctuary where trust and rapport are as fundamental as clinical care.
Our General Practice services include GP appointments in-clinic and outreach clinics, ensuring accessibility to those who need it most. These clinics are led by experienced GPs, nurses, or Indigenous health practitioners, offering a range of medical consultations, health assessments, and referrals to address the diverse needs of our clients, who often have complex or chronic healthcare needs.
Our Social Services encompass a holistic approach, acknowledging the deep connection between health, social support and overall wellbeing. We offer a robust support system with counseling, group programs, and hands-on assistance, aimed at empowering individuals and aiding their journey back into the community.
We are devoted to building trust and rapport with those who have disengaged from mainstream health services, aiming to provide continuity of care and alleviate pressure on the health system.
