Welcome to the Northern Adelaide Medicare Local


As a part of the National Health Reform agenda, a network of Medicare Locals has been established across Australia by the Australian Government to improve coordination and integration of primary health care and community services.

The Northern Adelaide Medicare Local (NAML) was formally established on 2nd February 2012. The NAML region covers approximately 1,600 sq km and has an estimated population of 399,000 people. The region covers the Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Playford, Salisbury, Tea Tree Gully, Gawler, Mallala and part of the City of Port Adelaide Enfield.

We are working to ensure the highest possible level of health and wellbeing for our community by improving the local coordination of primary healthcare services and addressing gaps in services. This will make it easier for people living across Adelaide‚Äôs north to navigate the healthcare system and access the correct health and community services in the right place, at the right time. 

In order to improve health outcomes in our community, the NAML is engaging and collaborating with government, health providers, key stakeholders and the public around its priority areas.
