I am a health professional looking to refer patients more effectively
Although you may be familiar with the process and assessments involved in referring patients for aged care, we can help you stay across the latest updates to the system and ensure you refer patients for the right care more effectively.
There is often a waiting period while My Aged Care assessments are completed. We can help fill the gap for your patients by providing services on a private fee-paying basis.
