Chronic Disease Management Program:
Have you been diagnosed recently with a chronic condition, or been living with one for some time?
Have you been told that you are at risk of developing a chronic condition?
Our Chronic Disease Management Program can help you to manage an existing chronic condition (such as heart disease, lung disease or diabetes) or reduce your risk of developing a chronic condition in the future.
The focus of this program is to:
- Help you have a better understanding of your health conditions and the current treatments you are receiving
- Identify lifestyle changes that can be made to improve your health
- Support you to set goals relating to improving your health
- Assist you to access relevant community supports and services to meet your healthcare goals
The Chronic Disease Management Clinic runs each Thursday and Friday and offers appointments at the Community Health Centre, in your home or via telehealth consultation.
To self-refer please phone South Gippsland Community Health Centre on (03) 5683 9780.
Referrals from GPs and other healthcare professionals are welcome. To refer clients aged over 65 referrals via My Aged Care is preferred. For clients under 65 years old referrals can be sent to South Gippsland Community Health Centre via fax: (03) 5683 9746 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Once your referral is received our intake team will phone you to arrange a suitable time for your initial consultation to occur.
A small client contribution fee is charged for this service and is set according to your income. This will be discussed during the initial intake phone call.
