A ComPacks package is a non-clinical case managed package of community care available for people being transferred home from a participating NSW public hospital.
Each package is for a maximum of six weeks and is for those patients who require immediate access to case management and at least two community services to safety return home from hospital.
Typical services include case management and a mix of personal care, domestic assistance, transport to medical appointments and social support
Care Connect is the contracted NSLHD ComPacks provider.
There are an allocated number of ComPacks packages available each week, with more in the winter months and less during the summer months.
ComPacks is based on a collaborative model of care between NSW Ministry of Health, Local health Districts and brokered community organisations.
