This year it has been harder to get help because of COVID-19. You may not have been able to get a COVID-19 test or missed your hospital appointments.  We support all people with a disability, especially Aboriginal and LGBTQI+ people, and their carers to access services such as:

  • COVID-19 testing or treatment
  • Health support you may have missed
  • Finding health services you have been unable to access
  • Support while you are in hospital
  • Helping to attend clinics 

People with disabilities may be able to access the Call-to-Test service.

Call the DHHS coronavirus (COVID-19) hotline on 1800 675 398 and select option 9.

You can read about the Call-to-Test service in Easy English.

Here is the link for People with disabilities to find out more from DHHS.
