Oak Valley Health Service

Oak Valley Health Service was established in 1985 as a community outstation for Anangu people displaced from the Maralinga Lands for the British atomic tests. Oak Valley (Maralinga) Inc. managed the establishment of the community including housing, roads and other infrastructure. Now serviced with a store, mechanics garage, health clinic, aged care centre, a new school and an airstrip, a CDEP program and arts workshop, the community is well established.

The health clinic provides primary health care to the community, monitoring ongoing health issues such as diabetes, hypertension, ante-natal and post-natal care, child and school health. Their main role is health education, hosting visiting specialists and referrals for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS).
