Allied Health services focus on restoring, improving, or maintaining independent functioning and wellbeing. This is done through providing a range of clinical interventions, expertise, care and treatment, education including techniques for self-management.
Our focus is on providing low cost, or fully funded health services, that allow continuity in health care from acute presentation to outpatient/community care.
We strive to provide high level care and treatment, promoting a multidisciplinary approach to health care by working with local GPs, health services and community programs.
Allied Health Services can be accessed in the community or as an inpatient at one of our acute hospitals (Creswick, Daylesford or Kyneton). A referral from your GP or discharging hospital may be required to access some services.
If you have a chronic medical condition, you may be eligible for Allied Health services. You must have a chronic medical condition. Chronic medical conditions are those that have been, or are likely to be, present for at least 6 months. This includes:
• Cardiovascular disease
• Kidney disease
• Musculoskeletal conditions
Funding through Medicare can include:
• General Practitioner Management Plan (GPMP)
• Team Care Arrangements (TCA)
• Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) up to 5 sessions all bulk billed
• Transition Care Program (TCP)
These care plans on the Medicare Benefits Schedule where GPs are able to plan treatment for patients who suffer from a chronic or terminal medical condition with other medical providers. They can be provided via your GP if deemed appropriate to help you to coordinate care and reduce the need for ad hoc consultations.
