COVID-19 sparks new model of care for Western Sydney

The outbreak of COVID-19 in Western Sydney over the Christmas New Year period known as the Berala cluster put to the test a new model of care being introduced in the region, with 10 of the 28 patients cared for in their own homes under the new Care in the Community program.

The program, a joint initiative between WentWest - the Western Sydney Primary Health Network (WSPHN) and Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD), saw patients with no known GP offered virtual care in their own home from two of four contracted general practices.
