Eligibility

NSHNS require that all patients have medical supervision from either a Medical Practitioner or a hospital, and the patient will be asked to provide consent for the service to contact the GP and other relevant service providers when necessary.

Referral

Patients can be referred to the Service for the provision of nursing in a number of ways. Referrals can be made by calling 1300 732 503. Referral care may be made by:

  • Patients
  • General Practitioners
  • Hospitals – Public and Private facilities
  • Community Services or other health care providers
  • Family member or friend

Urgent cases

NSHNS is not an emergency service.  For urgent advice, patients are advised to contact their General Practitioner, or emergency services.

Other information

As the service receives its funding from the Commonwealth and State Governments we provide services free of charge regardless of the length and frequency of visits. We do however receive payment for people whose care may be covered by Insurance or are eligible Veterans.
