NDIS – patients are welcome to our practice, and we are actively involved in the long term management and welfare of their health. There are more than 4 million Australians who have a disability. The NDIS provides a significant number of Australians who have permanent and significant disability, with funding for supports and services. For many people, it will be the first time they receive the disability support they need.
The NDIS can provide all people with disability with information and connections to services in their communities such as doctors, allied health, sporting clubs, support groups, libraries and schools, as well as information about what support is provided by each state and territory government.
The NDIS is not a welfare system. The NDIS is designed to help people get the support they need so their skills and independence improve over time. We are passionate about helping you on your NDIS journey, so please get in contact when you’re ready to begin.
