The Friendlies have an extensive and growing Allied Health Service offering, encompassing Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Nutrition and Dietetics and Podiatry. It is highly likely that as an inpatient at the Friendly Society Private Hospital your doctor may recommend one of our Allied Health Professionals to come and see you during your stay.
After discharge you may still need to, or wish to, continue as an outpatient. In fact, anyone from the public is welcome to make appointments with our Allied Health Services Team.
So whether it is physio treatment you require, occupational therapy advice and assistance call our reception to book an appointment.
Outpatients will be required to pay a fee for this service. Some patients may be eligible to receive assistance from DVA or Medicare. In this case, you will need to obtain a DVA referral or EPC-Medicare Care Plan from your GP first, and then make an appointment with us. If you have “extras” cover within your Private Health Insurance, then you may also be eligible for a rebate for our services.
