Health Coordination Team (HCT) works with people with long term health needs. We aim to help people understand and manage their health conditions, and reduce the risk of coming to hospital. 

An initial assessment is conducted with emphasis on listening to the person’s concerns and developing a plan of care to meet their health needs. It is essential that the person be willing to take actions to improve their health.

Allied Health and Nursing staff within the HCT are known as Health Coordinators. People on our program are linked with a specific Health Coordinator who works with them over a period of 2 – 9 months. 

People can be referred to Health Coordination if they have: 

  • A long term health condition such as 
    • Lung problems
    • Diabetes
    • Heart problems 
  • Been in hospital, or at risk of going into hospital because of their health condition. 
  • Live in Wodonga and Upper Hume Region and Albury, Thurgoona or Lavington.
