The Healthy Ageing Team is all about helping people age healthfully

During the height of the flood response, 23 centres were operationalised with health provision and support provided by Healthy North Coast, in partnership with the NNSWLHD. 

From 4 March 2022 and again in partnership with the NNSWLHD, Healthy North Coast deployed 23 Healthy Minds providers across 10 evacuation and recovery centres for up to seven days a week, to deliver brief intervention, support and referral. In total, Healthy North Coast commissioned 34 mental health practitioners to provide brief interventions at eight recovery centres from 9 March to 3 June 2022.  

Mobilising primary care volunteers 

Healthy North Coast quickly established a volunteer database to coordinate general practice and mental health volunteers, who generously gave their time to support the community. Nearly 100 clinical volunteers registered interest to support flood-impacted communities. Over 1,000 hours of support was delivered during this period and 304 referrals were made to extreme climatic events services, with 1,928 service contacts delivered between 1 March and 30 June 2022. 

Crisis communication and information

During the immediate emergency and the following recovery period, Healthy North Coast delivered critical communication regarding available primary health services to the community and primary care providers through digital marketing platforms, distribution of printed collateral and mainstream media.
