Health services back

INGLEWOOD and Districts Health Service says it is in the final process of planning the return of services to the Wedderburn community at the town’s community centre.

IDHS CEO Tracey Wilson said the services would include physiotherapy, diabetes education, social work, counselling and exercise classes.

She said face-to-face appointments at Wedderburn ceased last March due to COVID-19 restrictions. These services were continued virtually by telehealth.

Representatives of the health service met last week with community centre leaders to discuss services in the town.

Tracey said IDHS was “very grateful for the support and assistance from the Community Centre staff and volunteers to allow us to return services for the Wedderburn community.

“IDHS has not been able to recommence services due to the restrictions imposed by the Department of Health and Human Services resulting from the COVID19 pandemic.

“IDHS has reviewed the spaces within the centre that IDHS uses to make sure that they are COVID safe for our clients and staff.

“Once services are returned, there will be some changes introduced including the same registration processes as in place at IDHS.”

Tracey says clients attending the Wedderburn centre will need to access appointments and groups through the main entrance, register with the community house, and also complete the attestation and temperature checks before. progressing to the group or individual appointments.

The health service will hold its annual general meeting next week at Inglewood Town Hall. Members of the public are invited to attend. RVSP is essential as attendee list limited due to COVID density requirements.
