Initially the service is to be provided to patients in the Whittlesea LGA, with expansion of the program in 2017/18 to also include Monash and Banyule LGAs in the EMPHN catchment.

  • chronic heart failure;
  • chronic kidney disease;
  • chronic obstructive pulmonary disease;
  • osteoarthritis/rheumatoid arthritis;
  • asthma;
  • type 2 diabetes; and/or
