Community physiotherapy referral information now available

7 November 2018

The community services section of the Metro South Health Refer Your Patient website now includes updated information for chronic disease physiotherapy services.

Community physiotherapists assist patients recently discharged following a hospital admission related to an acute or chronic cardiac, respiratory condition and/or diabetes with self management and a home exercise program to work towards living well with their chronic disease.

To be eligible, patients need to require multidisciplinary support. Where indicated for respiratory patients, the physiotherapist will design an appropriate airway clearance program.

Referrals can be sent to the Community Referral Service directly by fax to: 3156 4382. For further information please contact the Community Referral Service at 1300 364 155 – Option 3.
