Disability Liaison Office

Barwon Health has a dedicated Disability Liaison Officer (DLO) team.

Barwon Health DLOs are a multi-disciplinary team that supports people with disability, their families, and carers to access services at Barwon Health. 

The service has a strong focus on identifying and addressing barriers people with disability experience in accessing health services. This includes supporting people with disability during their patient journey across outpatients, acute and post-acute care, and community services.

What we do

  • Support all people with disability, their families, and carers to access health services at Barwon Health and other services within the Barwon South West region.
  • Develop a Health Passport that contains key information in providing person-centred care.
  • Develop an ‘About Me’ to help guide your stay with us.
  • Work with the healthcare team to ensure safer, accessible, and more inclusive care during hospital stays and when attending outpatient clinic appointments. 
  • Help find answers to any general questions.
