At Silverchain, we offer a free Care Coordination Support Service to help you manage health conditions such as diabetes, asthma, arthritis, heart or lung disease, cancer, and back issues in between visits to your GP, or to help keep you out of hospital.
How we help:
Working closely with you, your local GP and pharmacy, we provide support depending upon your health, social and wellbeing needs. Our service can include:
- a personalised plan based on your needs and wants
- connecting you to a GP if you don’t have one
- booking appointments for other services and programs and assist with arranging transport to attend them
- helping you with new or more referrals
- fill prescriptions
- finding more social and funding support.
