Expo Service Directory

Northern Sydney Medicare Local (NSML) and Northern Sydney Medicare Local (NSLHD) held the Navigating Local Health Services Expo & Continuity of Care Forum on Saturday 17 May. The aim of the event was to improve continuity of care through awareness of and access to local health services.

The event was a great success with exhibition of over 50 local health services. These services formed the development of the Navigating Local Health Services Directory which includes a description of services, patient eligibility, area served, operating hours, waiting time, referral details and key contacts.

Over 100 GPs, Primary Care Nurses and allied health professionals attended the expo and forum which included presentations on Managing Emergency Conditions in Primary Care along with how to identify surgical emergencies and the appropriate management pathways. A panel discussion took place at the end of the day facilitated by Dr Penny Browne, GP. The panel representing Aged Care, Mental Health, General Practice, Carer Support, Emergency and Chronic Disease and Complex Care explored and discussed management of patients with complex co-morbidities and how we can improve their patient journey together.
