The Government has approved an extension of the Living with COVID 19 Home Visitation Program funding that will allow GPs, GP respiratory clinics and RACFs in the EMPHN region to continue to refer eligible at-risk people affected by COVID-19 for primary care home visits. This activity has been extended for a further 6 months to 30 June 2023. The Living with COVID Home Visitation program will target COVID positive people living at home or in residential care, who need to have a clinical assessment face-to-face, where their usual GP does not have capacity or where a person does not have a managing GP. Includes coverage in both daytime (9am to 5pm) and after-hours (5pm to 11.59pm) seven days a week.
The service can be provided in the following LGA’s:
- Nillumbik (part coverage – check postcode list)
- Whittlesea (part coverage – check postcode list)
- Yarra Ranges (part coverage – check postcode list)
