Allied Health Regional Outreach

Our integrated model of care seeks to alleviate Allied Health Professional shortages in Regional NSW.

As a recipient of the Value-Based Allied Health Reconnection Grant from the Hunter New England Central Coast Primary Health Network, Recovery Station will be piloting a regional outreach program to address the shortfall in access to allied health services such as Occupational Therapy and Speech Pathology.

Our goal is to provide greater access to much-needed assessments and critical interventions for individuals living with disabilities, chronic conditions, and the ageing population. We aim to collaborate with local services to redress shortages rather than replicate existing service provisions.

To do this, we’ve created an integrated model of service that combines:

Fly-in clinical teams providing face-to-face initial assessments

Follow up telepractice sessions with the clinician

Support from local allied health assistants (AHA’s) with ongoing therapy delivery

The pilot program will primarily focus on three locations: Tamworth, Armidale and Taree

We will be collaborating with a wide range of local organisations to identify and support the unmet needs in the local communities.

To work with us, you’ll need to identify the services you and your clients require.

Make a referral to Recovery Station with your client’s specific needs

Identify staff within your organisation that may be suitable for AHA training to build the local Allied Health workforce.

Initial clinician fly-in visits

Clinical services provided will be based on your referral needs with a range of allied health services on offer.

Services are available at all times via telepractice.
