Disability Liaison Office
Barwon Health has a dedicated Disability Liaison Officer (DLO) team.
Barwon Health DLOs are a multi-disciplinary team that supports people with disability, their families, and carers to access services at Barwon Health.
The service has a strong focus on identifying and addressing barriers people with disability experience in accessing health services. This includes access to COVID-19 testing and vaccination, and supporting people with disability during their patient journey across outpatients, acute and post-acute care, and community services.
