Information for Referrers and Partners
Access Health and Community is still open and accepting referrals.
We are continuing to support the health and well-being of our community through the COVID-19 Pandemic.
In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have changed some of our services to protect the health of our clients, patients, staff and volunteers and to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the community.
For detailed information on changes, please download this PDF Information sheet
Check back to this page – we will keep it updated.
We are calling our clients first
Before all appointments, we are calling clients & patients first. We are screening people for risk of COVID-19 as well as the risks and benefits of providing care in our clinic or in the clients home.
We are also screening our staff for their risk of COVID-19.
We are prioritising urgent care
To help prevent burdening the health system, we are prioritising clients and patients at high-risk of hospital admission. Our aim is to reduce the burden on tertiary health services and keep vulnerable clients and patients out of hospital.
We are using telehealth
Where possible and where it is clinically safe, we are offering clients and patients appointments via telehealth.
Clinical safety and privacy are our key priorities here.
