Disability Liaison Officers (DLOs) can support our patients with disability, their carers and Ballarat Health Services staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We can help people during the COVID-19 pandemic by providing assistance to access:

  • Testing and treatment for COVID-19
  • Usual health and medical services
  • Other services such as the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) or accommodation services
  • Support for all people with a disability, especially Aboriginal and LGBTQI people with a disability

We work with the health care teams to provide safer, accessible and more inclusive care during their hospital stay and outpatient clinic appointments.

Information about other activities we are undertaking at Ballarat Health Services as well as information from the Department of Health and Human Services can be found below:
