National Health Services Directory (NHSD) (Point) 2018

The National Health Services Directory (NHSD), published by Healthdirect Australia, is a comprehensive and consolidated national directory of health services and related health service providers in both the public and private sectors across all Australian jurisdictions. The purpose of the NHSD is to provide consistent, authoritative, reliable and easily accessible information about health services to the public and to support health professionals with the delivery of healthcare. Data current as of December 2018.

Please note:

  • AURIN has spatially enabled the original data.
  • Where the value for the column "People Employed" is None, this means that individual practitioner data stored against that site is not available at the time of data capturing.
  • For the records whose locations are confidential, the geo-location is mapped to the centroid of the suburb they belong to. To better recognise such records, a column with Yes/No values was added with the title "Confidential Address".
