Important changes to NDIS in-kind funding arrangements: From 1 July 2019, we are changing from being an ‘in-kind’ to ‘fee for service provider’ for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
About our services
The Prosthetics and Orthotics (P&O) Service offers assessment, advice, manufacture, fitting and ongoing support in providing prosthetics, orthotics and medical grade footwear.
P&O services are run within inpatient, community day-stay and community settings. They include:
- the prescription of prefabricated, customised or custom-made devices based on clinical and individual client needs
- assistance and support in organising funding for devices where available
- fitting, adjustment and manufacture of required devices
- review and maintenance of devices to ensure they meet client needs
- Equipment eligibility, repairs and modifications
Referrals for P&O can be made via the Central Health Intake (CHI) on 02 5124 9977, by fax on 02 5124 1082 or by email on CHIIntake@act.gov.au.
We also accept referrals directly from clients, carers, GPs and other healthcare providers via Village Creek Administration by phoning 6207 0658 or via fax on 6207 2199.
P&O is part of the Clinical Technology Services which provide services to the ACT community and surrounding NSW region from the Village Creek campus.
If you are eligible for NDIS funding our services need to be included in your plan. All Clinical Technology Services are provided to ACT residents as ‘in-kind’ NDIS services. All Clinical Technology Services can provide information and/or recommendations to assist in the planning process if required.
Clients not eligible for NDIS funding can access our services as a public or privately funded client. We can help you identify your eligibility for the funding of services or equipment through alternate funding sources.
For more information, please contact us on 02 6207 0658 between 8:30am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. You can also contact the Central Health Intake (CHI) on 02 5124 9977, by fax on 02 5124 1082 or by email on CHIIntake@act.gov.au.
