Team Care Arrangements
Patients can be referred by their GP via Team Care Arrangement which is designed to provide specialised individual treatment services to patients who have a chronic medical condition and complex care needs.
All programs maintain a focus on educating the individual to self manage their condition over the long term.
A chronic medical condition is one that has been or is likely to be present for at least six months.
These include a range of commonly preventable health conditions such as:
- Chronic Respiratory Disease & Asthma
- Diabetes & Pre-Diabetes
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Back & Neck Pain
- Chronic Fatigue
- Physical restrictions or mobility issues
