"Couldn't survive without the CCSS program."

About: Integrated Team Care (Brisbane North PHN)

(as the patient),

I don’t think that Indigenous people on disability pensions would survive without the CCSS programs. I believe I would be in hospital every day with high BP, breathing problems, as well as other problems.

If it wasn’t for Kylie my nurse from the CCSS Program I would be up a well known creek without a paddle. She has allowed me to have my dignity back by not going into hospital all the time. I am one of the stolen generation adults now and I hate being locked up, like to stay home and be free.

Dear Paddling,

Thanks for taking the time to post a story about your experience of the Care Coordination and Supplementary Services program. It’s great to hear that the support from Kylie and the CCSS is making a difference in your life.

Keep that paddle in your hand and stay out of that creek!

Kind Regards,

Metro North Brisbane Medicare Local.
