For patients with complex medical needs, Camden South Family Doctors provides management plans that enable doctors to plan and coordinate the health care of patients with chronic or terminal medical conditions.
A chronic medical condition is one that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer, for example, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal conditions and stroke.
If you have a chronic condition, with or without complex care needs, a GP Management Plan will enable your GP to provide a structured approach to your care. It is a plan of action in which you agree management goals with your GP. Once you have a GP Management Plan in place, you are able to access up to five allied health services each calendar year.
The five services can be provided by a single allied health provider or shared across different providers. You can request that your GP refer you to an allied health provider, or your GP can recommend one.
We are pleased to have are very own onsite Allied Health services available for Physiotherapy, Dietician & Nutritionist, Exercise Physiology and Podiatry, which we believe adds value benefits, to our patients, doctors and medical support staff. For further advice on how these allied health professionals may provide further health benefits for you, then simply discuss that with your GP.
