The ACT's sole First Nations-run health centre, Winnunga Nimmityjah, says demand for services is so high staff can't keep up with seeing patients.

CEO Julie Tongs says the organisation has been forced to reorganise their services, launching a child health e-clinic and triage system where all patients are assessed by a nurse before seeing a doctor.

She says they don't have enough space in their current building and are desperately seeking more funding and resources to meet the high demand.
