We acknowledge that Hampstead Health is located on the traditional country of the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains. We acknowledge the cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship with the land of the Kaurna people as of importance in the development of this health service as a welcoming place and its role in positively supporting the health and well being of the Kaurna people.
Our vision is to deliver high quality, comprehensive, integrated, multidisciplinary primary health care services to the people and communities within the catchment area of five kilometers from Hampstead Health location and bounded in the South East by the River Torrens.
Hampstead Health will encompass the following definition of primary health care:
“Primary health care is a holistic approach which incorporates body, mind, spirit, land, environment, custom and socio-economic status. Primary health care is an Aboriginal cultural construct that includes essential, integrated care based upon practical, scientifically sound and socially acceptable procedures and technology made accessible to communities as close as possible to where they live through their full participation in the spirit of self-reliance and self-determination. The provision of this calibre of health care requires an intimate knowledge of the community and its health problems, with the community itself providing the most effective and appropriate way to address its main health problems, including promotive, preventative, curative and rehabilitative services.” (Adapted from the World Health Organisation Alma-Ata Declaration 1978).
The primary health care developed by Hampstead Health will encompass:
“the provision of medical care, with its clinical services treating diseases and its management of chronic illness, it includes such services as environmental health, pharmaceuticals, counselling, preventive medicine, health education and promotion, rehabilitative services, antenatal and postnatal care, maternal and child care, programs and necessary aspects of health care arising from social, emotional and physical factors.” (Boughton, 2009).
We are committed to providing the maximum amount of clinical training and education for all current and future primary health care workers.
We will engage with our community to improve individual and community capacity for health and self determination, prevention of illness, and early detection and management of diseases with the aim of reducing avoidable hospitalisations and deaths, reducing disease risks, improving work participation, individual and family well-being and overall quality of life.
To achieve our vision we will deliver:
