Country Liaison Service
The Country Liaison Service is part of the Patient Flow Unit at Southern Adelaide Local Health Network (SALHN). The role provides a central point of contact to support the health journey for country patients requiring care in SALHN hospitals.
Problem solving for individual issues or barriers to country patient flow is provided, as well as addressing wider issues around country capacity, service readiness, timeliness and other flow related concerns.
Partnerships with country providers and other Local Health Network counterparts have been formed to improve the patient journey and ensure country patients receive the appropriate level of care, closest to home and a smooth transition in their health care journey.
This service is available to patients who are currently living in country areas who are inpatients in Flinders Medical Centre and Noarlunga Hospital or for those patients who may require access to alternative services pre and post-acute stay.
