Getting NDIS participants home from hospital

Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), the Hon. Bill Shorten has today announced that 54 NDIS Specialised Hospital Discharge Planners will work in hospitals across the country. 

These specialist planners will speed up discharge by working with participants throughout their hospital journey, using increased delegation and decision making powers to approve higher plan values at a local level where needed.

A total 50 Hospital Liaison Officers will also now help wrangle the supports needed across systems for safe and timely discharge of people with disability.
