DVA In Home Monitoring for Veterans Trial

Veteran

Nambucca Family Medical has registered a number of patients to be involved in the Department of Veterans Affairs In Home Monitoring For Veterans trial program.

Instead of going to the GP for a check up, eligible veterans, war widows, widowers and dependants can measure their own vital signs using the latest equipment, which DVA will install in their home for free. Telemonitoring equipment sends readings through broadband technology to their GP and nurse coordinator who can call them for an appointment if anything is out of the ordinary.

For more information see the DVA website in relation to this program, or contact the practice.
