Consultation in an environment that best suits the individual. This may be at the client’s home, facility, workplace or gym. Generally, seeing one of our team in the community does cost extra due to the time it takes them to travel.
Neuro Alliance is very conscious of cost and tries very hard to structure their days to reduce the travel cost for the client or third party.
Neuro Alliance provides outreach services to the following areas:
- Port Stephens
- Lake Macquarie
- Upper Hunter Region
- Lower Hunter Region
- Taree, Tuncurry and Forster
- Muswellbrook and Singleton
- Central Coast
Due to the geographical spread of our service we offer distance Skype based consultations. The appropriateness of an online consultation is dependent on the client's individual circumstances and will be assessed on a case by case basis.
This option is popular for people who we have already been assessed and need basic follow up consultation. Examples may include a progression in their exercise program or a review of their current upper limb function.
It is also a useful tool for conducting initial interviews for clients whom may not be sure if they are suitable for a referral to our service. This can save a lot in travel especially if it is decided that a referral may not be appropriate.
Using online media(s) is an effective way to reduce costs for clients however still provide a high level of service.
Technology is allowing the health profession to provide innovative services particularly to those in remote and isolated communities.
