Right Care, Right Time, Right Place

 
Residents in Greater Hume Shire will soon be better equipped to handle their health matters after hours, with the release of some useful information brochures.
 
Developed as a result of collaboration between Greater Hume Shire, Hume Medicare Local and Murrumbidgee Local Health District, the new brochures – which double as fridge magnets - will be distributed to residents and businesses from February 16. Using the slogan “right care, right time, right place” they provide contact numbers for emergency services, advice and support lines, as well as recommendations for dealing with non-urgent health matters.

 


The information presented is easy to understand and should bring peace of mind to residents and is particularly useful for visitors who aren’t familiar with the services in the local area.

24 Hour Health Help at Hand

The service—an initiative of the NSW and federal governments—is designed to help residents across NSW access non-urgent health information and advice 24 hours a day.

A sophisticated computerised decision support system developed by medical professionals is used to provide safe and consistent advice and assessment to callers, and to recommend appropriate action. A directory of local services and facilities can also help callers access health and medical providers wherever they are located in NSW.

That means NSW residents travelling throughout the state don’t have to worry about how or where to find health help while they’re away from home, or the expense that these services may involve.

Callers anywhere in NSW can access healthdirect Australia by phoning one number—1800 022 222. Calls from landlines are free. Mobile charges may apply.
