DES Update - November 2019
The State Government has decided to gradually withdraw from delivering Domiciliary Equipment Service (DES) services to the market by December 2020. This will include a proposed transfer of DES’ refurbished and readily available loan equipment service, and the gradual closure of remaining services including home modifications, wheelchair and seating services and on-road repairs.
We will work with our staff and other parties during the winding down phase of the services that will close, to ensure the changes happen smoothly and with minimal disruption to our clients.
In the meantime, it will be business as usual for our refurbished and readily available loan equipment service at Netley in the lead-up to the proposed transfer of that service next year.
Clients accessing equipment through the State Equipment Program will not be impacted by this withdrawal.
Further information will be provided as it is confirmed. You can find general information about DES on this website, or phone 1300 295 786.
