The ITC Care Coordinator works within the NSLHD region to assist clients in accessing necessary health services and have access to a supplementary service funding pool to access allied health and specialist services that are urgently required and unavailable in a clinically acceptable timeframe.
The ITC Indigenous Health Project Officer (IHPO) aims to improve access to culturally appropriate mainstream health services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The IHPO also provides Outreach services, assisting clients with attending medical appointments.
