Residential Aged Care Access

Residential Aged Care Access (RACA) provides access to specific allied health services for residents of residential aged care facilities, and assists to support RACFs in developing a collaborative approach with the allied health professionals for quality resident care.

Allied health professionals have been engaged via expressions of interest to provide specified services. Pre-arranged packages of care are delivered at a given RACF, residents are referred, or referral on an individual basis depending on the needs of the facility or the individual resident.

Brisbane South PHN recognises that access to health services is vital to improve quality of life of residents and may prevent avoidable admissions to hospital.

Blue Care has commenced directly managing the Residential Aged Care Access (RACA) program on behalf of Brisbane South PHN and accepts referrals to this program.
