Puntukurnu Aboriginal Medical Service Aboriginal Corporation
Puntukurnu Aboriginal Medical Service (PAMS) is an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service located in the East Pilbara region and delivers services in communities located in the Great Sandy, Little Sandy, and Gibson Deserts. PAMS provide health services supported by visiting clinicians and allied health practitioners to the Martu people . PAMS aim to deliver high quality culturally appropriate primary health care. An integrated service delivery model staffed by a multidisciplinary team (of both resident and visiting health professionals) provides a broad range of primary health services to the Martu people of our communities. Most of the care is provided by a team of remote area nurses who also provide after-hours emergency care as required. Our medical practitioner is based at Jigalong but undertakes fortnightly trips via charter plane to our other three communities of Punmu, Parnngurr and Kunawarritji.
