Darwin city clinic

The Knuckey Street Clinic in the centre of Darwin is Danila Dilba’s busiest clinic.

The clinic provides high quality health care in a culturally appropriate environment. Like all our clinics, Knuckey Street works on an ‘Aboriginal health practitioner first’ policy so you will first be seen by an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioner before you see a doctor.

General practitioners, Aboriginal Health Practitioners, registered nurses and other staff provide a comprehensive primary health care service, including acute and chronic disease management.

Other services include care coordination, a renal team, specialist clinics, diabetic educator, chronic disease support, family support workers and eye health care.

The Live Well, Stay Well chronic disease team provides services and follow-up care to patients with a chronic and/or complex disease, including diabetes, kidney disease, heart and lung disease, hypertension and cancer.

Family Support Workers help make visits to the clinic as comfortable and smooth as possible by:
liaising on behalf of the patient

  • helping GPs and Care Coordinators with patient attendance at appointments
  • supporting patients accessing other agencies, such as Centrelink and Housing
  • providing cultural advice to staff.

Knuckey Street is also the base for our mobile clinic, which provides outreach services to people who are either homeless, or living in town camps in the Darwin and Palmerston areas.

  • cardiologist and cardiac educator
  • physiotherapist
  • dietician
  • podiatrist
  • diabetes educator
  • endocrinologist
  • ophthalmologist
  • sonographer (echo)
