“On behalf of Northern Rivers Area Health Service, Aboriginal Health Workers and Aboriginal communities, we would like to thank you most sincerely for your valuable time and effort over the past 2 years to develop the Aboriginal Health Strategic Plan.
It has been a long and time consuming process, and your patience and ability to get the job done has proved fruitful, and your dedication to this plan has far outweighed our expectations of this document.
The consultation process involved with this plan has played a very important role of acknowledging the input from our Indigenous communities and ensuring that the voice of the Aboriginal people were incorporated into this plan.
As well as using the “Partnership” approach involving all various government departments that work with our communities.
I should like to thank you personally as we have established a friendship that goes far beyond this document we so diligently worked on, as well as a lot of laughs over the 2 year period.
Yours in unity”
