Out of hospital care

The best of care is what you want. Sometimes that might mean not going to hospital, or coming home from hospital early.

Hospital in the home, hospital substitute services and home nursing can provide the care you need in the comfort of your own home.

Hospital in the home

If your doctor agrees, you might be able to leave early. You’ll still be an admitted patient of the hospital, but you’ll receive your care somewhere else.  

Hospital substitute

Hospital substitute programs deliver services by qualified health practitioners where your doctor recommends treatments in substitution for hospitalisation. Depending on where you live, we can arrange for health care providers to come to your home for services such as wound management and intravenous therapy.

Home nursing

Depending on your level of cover, we can pay for a registered nurse in private practice to care for you in your home. Your doctor will arrange this with us if he or she believes you’ll recover faster with a little extra care at home.
