    Meet Kobi - Team Leader, Integrated Care Service

    My name is Kobi and I am from the La Perouse Aboriginal Community.

    I was born in Darwin and lived there with my family for 8 years before my mother moved back to La Perouse. I am from the Djirrabal (North QLD) and Yuin (South Coast, NSW) nations. 

    I have been employed with Justice Health & Forensic Mental Health Network for the past seven years in various roles in the Medical Appointments Unit and as a Care Navigator in the Care Navigation Support Program.

    Recently I was promoted to the role of Team Leader, Integrated Care Service based at Long Bay Hospital. The Integrated Care Service provides assistance to people in custody with chronic disease and other health related issues.  The Integrated Care Service coordinates quality care for patients whilst in custody.

    As the Team Leader it is my role to ensure that my team provides a quality service that is efficient and effective.

    I enjoy working with our patients and assisting them with the health care needs on their return home. 

    I am in the final stages of completing my Certificate IV in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care with a focus on chronic disease, which will provide me with the foundation to continue to progress in my career and to help my community, patients and family.
