Managing your long-term illnesses in a dedicated fashion to help achieve better outcomes.
If you have a chronic condition such as diabetes, you may benefit from having a care plan organised for you. This is done in conjunction with our Practice Nurse and your regular doctor.
What it means for you is that these conditions are assessed at regular intervals. Care plans are specific for these conditions and do not cover other health issues.
You may qualify for team care arrangements, where you obtain Medicare rebates for sessions with allied health services (such as a diabetes educator, physiotherapist or a podiatrist). Your GP will be able to advise you further on this. These referrals will be specific to the condition in your plan.
