What we do
Primary & Community Care Services provides nursing, occupational therapy, social work and psychological support services in the community.
Our strengths lie in care coordination, linking and support services for people living with long-term health conditions and mental illness who have complex needs.
Our programs and services help consumers to:
• improve their health and wellbeing
• better navigate the system
• access needed supports and
• avoid unnecessary hospitalisations.
How we work
Our close connections with local referrers (including GPs, psychologists, psychiatrists and mental health teams) are essential to program delivery.
We deliver health and wellbeing programs locally in partnership with funders.
What PCCS provides health professionals
PCCS’ unique cross-linking with a range of government departments and other agencies enables us to offer seamless consumer interactions and support.
Our service models work alongside a GP’s or health professional’s normal model of care.
