National Centre for Veteran’s Healthcare
Concord Hospital has a proud history of serving Australia’s veterans since 1941. Through recognition of the nationwide need for the provision of better care for veterans, the National Centre for Veterans’ Healthcare (NCVH) was developed. It opened its doors in August 2019.
The NCVH is Australia’s first comprehensive outpatient care centre for veterans and builds on the hospital’s long and proud history of providing specialist services to veterans and their families.
The unique model of care will integrate a range of specialist services in a “one-stop shop” to assess, manage, treat and support the physical and mental health and wellbeing needs of veterans. Using an intensive personalised case management approach, the Centre provides care across a range of specialist services.
Dr Cameron Korb-Wells (NCVH Medical Director) and Ms Kirsty Chapman (NCVH Clinical Operations Manager) will showcase how the NCVH uses virtual care to connect clinicians to a client, carer or any person responsible for providing veterans’ care, and how technology provides and promotes continuity of care.
