About Our Complex Care Service
The Centre for Disability Studies (CDS) has an extensive history with providing specialist healthcare services to people with an intellectual disability, having operated the NSW Development Disability Health Unit (DDHU) out of Royal Rehabilitation Centre Sydney since 1998. CDS has a new health service for people with intellectual disability. The service is called the Complex Care Service (CCS).
Our service is for adults with intellectual disability who have complex health needs and can’t get these met by another service. We provide multidisciplinary health assessments, healthcare plans, advice, and referrals, led by a Clinical Nurse Consultant (CNC). Our service can be done in person, at our Strathfield clinic or using telehealth.
The service is funded by the Ministry of Health via a Ministerial Approved Grant (MAG) until June 2024.
