National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

NDIS ready image
The NDIS will revolutionise the way in which the Metro South community accesses disability support, allowing people with disability to have choice and control over how, when and where their supports are provided.

What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support for Australians with disability, their families and carers.

The NDIS will revolutionise the way in which the Metro South community accesses disability support, allowing people with disability to have choice and control over how, when and where their supports are provided.

Metro South #NDIS ready.

Metro South Health is committed to providing equitable, accessible and effective health care for people with disability.

The Metro South Disability Plan was developed in partnership with people with disability, carers, advocates and healthcare stakeholders to improve health service delivery for people with disability.

Developed in 2016, the plan also outlines the systemic changes needed within Metro South to work successfully with the NDIS as it is rolled out across Queensland.

Ongoing education and training means our clinical and administrative staff are well prepared for the rollout of the NDIS and are helping our patients to access the individualised support they can receive through the NDIS.

When is the NDIS available in the Metro South region?

The NDIS is available in the Metro South region from 1 July, 2018. An access request can be submitted up to six months prior to this day.  Successful applicants will then transition to the NDIS from July.

Who can access the NDIS?
