Starting your NDIS nursing services journey with Regal

If you have a current NDIS Plan, and require clinical support in the community, or are interested to know more about how Nurses can support you, please contact Regal to make an enquiry to begin your NDIS nursing services journey.

Alternatively, Regal will receive a professional referral from your treating clinician, which could be a hospital, General Practitioner or specialist doctor, and we will be in contact with you, and the referring clinician to kick start your NDIS community nursing services. You can access our professional referral form here.

Once a referral or enquiry is received, Regal will contact you and your clinical team for more information on your NDIS nursing services which will be reviewed by the Regal Clinical Team. Depending on what NDIS nursing services are being requested, this could include:

  • Hospital discharge summary
  • General Practitioner health summary
  • Relevant clinical reports

Once Regal has received this information, Regal Clinical Team will review and work with Regal Scheduling Team to assign appropriately skilled Nurses to your NDIS community nursing services. Regal Nurse will then conduct a Nursing Assessment, identifying anything that may be required to continue your services which could include required consumables and frequency and duration of visits.

If you do not currently have an NDIS Plan, please visit our Private Care page or read our FAQ’s.
