15NRHC Recommendation - 03/26/2019 - 23:06

NDIS frustration is rife.The professionals are being asked to provide multiple reports and recommendations, often on patients they have not seen in. years. Patients who have kept the best records, and know how to use services are more successful than those less well organised. You do need to be careful what you wish for, as a child with terrible language and ASD may only get a behavioural intervention and no Speech etc. Those who are given a "good" plan may not be able to spend the funds for lack of appropriate services locally, so that flexibility needs to be allowed to more remote households where travel to obtain a service may need to be funded. There may also need to be NDIS related Telehealth item numbers for allied health.
