Is the Home & Community Podiatry Service for you?

Home & Community Podiatry Service is for residents of the Burwood, Ashfield, Canada Bay, Canterbury, Leichhardt, Marrickville & Strathfield Local Government Areas who are assessed to be a frail older person, a younger person with a disability, and their carers.

If you already receive a Home & Community Care (HACC) funded service you are eligible for this podiatry service.

What do you need to do?

If you think you or a friend or family member may be eligible call the Podiatry Service Coordinator on 9911 9939. The coordinator will ask you some questions over the phone to see if you, your friend or family member are eligible for this service.

If eligible, the assessment officer will arrange a suitable time to visit you at home to assess your podiatry needs and make a suitable appointment with one of three local podiatrist clinics.

What is the cost?

A small fee of $10.00 will be charged for each visit to the podiatrist. If you have private health cover Home & Community Podiatry Service will pay the 'gap' for you.

The Podiatry Service can also provide interpreter services, assistance with transport to and from the podiatrist clinic, and can arrange home visits if required. The service also holds regulars information sessions you can attend to learn more about your foot care needs.
