    North Coast Health Connect
    Appointment Booking Service

    At the end of the triage process, callers to North Coast Health Connect are offered an appointment booking service.
    The appointment booking service is unique to North Coast Health Connect and will:

    • actively direct triaged consumers to general practice or community pharmacy, and
    • assist consumers to navigate their way to where they should go in the health system.

    The booking service works through a digital interface between the triage nurse and your practice. The interface allows the nurse to see a unique appointment type and availability specifically for use by North Coast Health Connect:

    1. The North Coast Health Connect triage nurse cannot see the practice’s entire calendar; they can only see and select the North Coast Health Connect appointment type.
    2. The North Coast Health Connect appointment type cannot be seen by the public.
    3. The practice manages which appointments it allocates to North Coast Health Connect.

    The triage nurse enters the patient details enabling the practice to make direct contact with the patient if required.

    The triage nurse checks each practice’s protocol (mask-wearing, etc) for attending the practice with the caller.

    If the caller has given the nurse accurate information and the person is an existing patient, the booking tool will match the patient to their existing record preventing the duplication of patient files.

    The caller receives a text or email from the booking tool provider with the time of the appointment, address and phone number of the practice.

    The digital interface

    The booking tool software can be used by any practice that currently uses Best Practice, Medical Director, ZedMed or Genie.

    Practices without electronic booking can be supported to adopt electronic booking if they wish to register to become part of the North Coast Health Connect network.

    Booking tool installation and cost

    Upon registration, our Healthy North Coast engagement team will contact you to discuss your software options and requirements.

    If you are already a client of one the booking tool vendors, the interface will be straightforward with no additional cost.

    For practices who are not current clients, financial support is available to cover up-front costs and fees for the first four months.

    The contractual agreement and licence to use the tool is between the practice and the booking tool vendor. The vendor provides training and support in the use of the platform.

    Our engagement team is here to help and support the process.

    Update provided 21 April 2022.

    As you know, Lismore Skin Clinic in Molesworth Street was destroyed in the recent floods, and we are trying to rebuild the site as soon as we can.

    In the meantime we will be moving to St Vincent’s Hospital Specialist Medical Centre – Level 4, Suite 12 – 20 Dalley Street Lismore.

    We hope to be up and running in the next two weeks (by early to mid May 2022) and our receptionists will soon begin calling our patients to rebook their appointments and catch up with their needs.

    Once we have a firm opening date we will update this notification.

    Our email address – [email protected] and our phone number – 02 6621 3500 will remain the same as in the past. Only the address changes for a while.

    We look forward to seeing you soon in our new premises.

    Many thanks for your patience and understanding in these heartbreaking times – stay safe.

    North Coast Health Connect Overview

    North Coast Health Connect provides 24/7 clinical advice from experienced triage nurses (registered nurses) via phone or webchat for North Coast consumers with acute clinical symptoms.  

    The objective of the service is to support consumers to find the right care at the right time and place, whilst also empowering them to manage their own care when safe to do so. 

    The service is funded by Healthy North Coast through the North Coast PHN Program, delivered by Amplar Health (Amplar) and evaluated by The George Institute

    Triage is conducted by registered nurses who are experienced in taking calls from health consumers. Each assessment commences with the collection of pertinent demographic information and ruling out life-threatening emergencies. Triage nurses then conduct a clinical assessment to gain an understanding of the relevant acute clinical symptoms and determine the best course of action.

    The nurses are guided by over 180 clinical decision support algorithms which; in turn, are informed by strong clinical evidence and practice globally. Amplar has used and continually improved these algorithms for over a decade, undertaking many millions of interactions with consumers in Australia. In addition, they have also improved the algorithms to fit our local conditions here on the North Coast.

    Despite the robustness of these decision support tools, all registered nurses maintain the autonomy to override the algorithm outcome if they make the clinical determination the patient needs higher acuity care (or lower care in limited circumstances).

    Where it is determined the caller is not able to manage their symptoms at home, the nurse who conducts the triage assessment may refer the caller to a wide range of services in the acute and primary care health system including:

    • ambulance response — 000
    • the nearest Emergency Department
    • see a general practitioner (GP) in 2 hours, 6 hours, 12 hours, 1-3 days or by routine appointment. View more information.
    • where no face-to-face GP appointments are available, attend an HNC GP telehealth appointment in 2 hours, 6 hours or 12 hours. View more information.
    • dental services
    • see a community pharmacist within 24 hours (read more below)
    • connection to a mental health support phone line or other phone lines where appropriate.

    Amplar monitors the clinical quality of the triage service to ensure it continues to align with best practice (ISO 9901:2015). Amplar has a dedicated Clinical Governance Team, overseen by a medical practitioner, who ensures patient safety and service effectiveness are always front of mind.

    In partnership with participating general practices in the Healthy North Coast region, North Coast Health Connect will provide a more integrated approach to patients who need a consultation with a GP urgently.

    When the triage assessment indicates the patient should consult with a doctor, the triage nurses will endeavour to assist the patient to find an available appointment with their own general practice in the first instance. Where that GP clinic is integrated with the triage service, the nurse will also be able to book that patient into a GP appointment directly, saving time and stress for the patient and GP clinic admin staff.

    This integration will also focus on increasing access to those without a regular GP, by booking the patient directly into an integrated GP clinic where possible.

    Healthy North Coast’s GP Telehealth service will be available to callers who are triaged as needing a GP appointment when no face-to-face appointment can be found and the presentation is suitable for a telehealth appointment.

    In partnership with the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia, North Coast Health Connect has developed a new low-acuity referral option to see a community pharmacist within 24 hours. These referrals are arrived at through the standardised clinical algorithms. Referrals are restricted to the current scope of Australian pharmacist practice.

    The consumer will receive a private 1:1 consultation with a community pharmacist, supported by evidence-based guidelines. The type of management interventions provided by the pharmacist include:

    • Provision of tailored health education and care advice
    • Supply of a non-prescription medicine
    • Escalation to another health professional

    The inclusion of community pharmacists as a North Coast Health Connect referral point provides an additional option for face-to-face healthcare advice and reassurance, as well as access to evidence-based treatments for patients who do not need urgent care. It also assists North Coast Health Connect to leverage maximum health system capacity for North Coast health consumers.

    Flood-impact survey and results

    The PHN primary health care services flood impact survey (May 2022) results showed:

    • 83% of responding services were concerned about staff wellbeing and burnout, followed by 67% concerned about the ability for staff to have a rest (annual leave, flexible working)
    • Of those services worried about staff retention, 67% were worried about retaining administration staff, followed by Nurses (49%) and GPs (37%)
    • Free locum services (52%), education for staff (39%) and staff debrief and wellbeing support (38%) were the top three workforce initiatives primary health care services were interested in utilising.

    Alexandra Howard
    Director Disaster and Public Health Emergencies

    Alexandra has more than ten years’ experience working in the field of post-traumatic mental health – as a clinical psychologist, educator and specialist in policy and service development. She has worked with disaster-impacted communities, emergency service and military personnel, and traumatic injury patients, as well the professionals who support them.  

    Alexandra’s particular interests lie in understanding and improving psychosocial outcomes for those impacted by disasters and public health emergencies, with a particular focus on marginalised populations, and with a gender lens. At Phoenix Australia, Alexandra has led a range of service development and training projects for a wide range of private, NGO and government stakeholders; her work focusses on translating evidence into practice, and disseminating best practice through policy and training frameworks that best suit the needs of each organisation. She has published in the field of post-traumatic mental health, and has presented her work at national and international conferences. 

    Dr Sara Renwick-Lau

    Dr Sara Renwick-Lau is a GP with more than 20 years’ experience working in regional and rural communities. After studying medicine at the University of Melbourne, Sara completed her General Practice training while providing medical care to the community in Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory.  

    For the next seven years, she worked in remote communities in the Northern Territory and helped recruit and provide medical education for junior doctors working in general practice in the bush. Since relocating to Victoria with her husband Marcus and their children, Sara has been focused on providing medical care to the people of Mallacoota.  

    She is part of the leadership team at Mallacoota Medical Centre. For those that may not be familiar with the East Gippsland town of Mallacoota, it has a population of approximately 1000, and is one of just two Victorian towns that is classified as remote.   

    It is also the only population in Victoria of more than 800 that is more than 30 minutes from hospital services or State-funded urgent care – with the closest hospital being in Bega, two hours’ drive away.  

    The 2019/20 Mallacoota fires were among the most destructive of the Black Summer bushfires. You may remember seeing images from New Years’ Eve 2019, when thousands of people took shelter on the Mallacoota foreshore as the town was hemmed in by fire. More than 100 homes were lost, roads in and out of the town were closed for 37 days — and food and water shortages, power outages – and eventually, the impact of COVID-19, complicated relief and recovery efforts in the weeks and months following the disaster.  

    The Mallacoota Medical Centre faced the bushfires in a new, purpose-built, fire-rated building that provided a safe space for community members to support bushfire response, relief and recovery. Pre-existing challenges related to the distances to secondary and tertiary health care, power insecurity and other resource issues. 

    She is passionate about providing comprehensive, patient-centred care – as well as helping with the recruitment and education of doctors in regional and remote areas of Australia.
