Providing Health & Wellbeing Solutions

Integrated Chronic Disease Care - Southern and Eastern Wheatbelt 

 

The aim of this program is to improve the health of people who are at high risk of, or have already been diagnosed with diabetes, cardiac or respiratory conditions

Patients will be referred to our Care Coordinator by their GP. The Care Coordinator will then talk to the patient and provide them with the allied health services they need to better manage their condition and feel more confident about their health.

How will the service work?

The program is targeted at vulnerable and disadvantaged people who will benefit from well coordinated wrap around care. GPs will refer their eligible patients into the program. When a referral has been received, the care coordinator will then contact the patient and talk to them about their health. The care coordinator will then be able to decide what support the patient requires and organise wrap around service support from a range of allied health professionals.

The services this program will provide include:

* Dietetics

* Diabetes

Visiting services will be provided to targeted locations, providing patients with locally based care.
