The organisation is a source of primary and preventive care for our community members who are at risk of poor health outcomes, and experience acute health disparities. SCHS understands the influence of the Social Determinants of Health upon health inequities experienced by community members and work with consumers and community members, to structure their care around the context in which they live and work.
The Family & Child Hub is a suite of child and family health and wellbeing services, all located under one roof. The services are both internal and external to SCHS and together have a ‘no wrong door’ approach to navigating the individual health and wellbeing pathways of families and children. The Family & Child Hub specifically focuses on the Social Determinants of Health, ensuring health equity.
