We are pleased to announce that we are a registered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provider.

NDIS Trading Name: The Footcare Clinic
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) supports people with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities. Being a registered provider under the NDIS means that we are able to provide podiatry services and supports using funds from this scheme if you are self-managed, agency managed or plan managed.
The Footcare Clinic can provide services in the following categories:
- Improved Daily Living (see services below) – As the name of the category suggests, it covers all services that can ‘improve your daily living skills’
- Assistive Technology (see devices below) – Assistive technologies (AT) are physical supports that help you:
- do something more easily or safely
- do something you otherwise cannot do because of your disability.

Accessing Podiatry under an NDIS plan
If there is a clinical need and your NDIS plan allows for therapy supports for daily living, you should be able to access podiatry services at The Footcare Clinic.
Therapeutic devices can be accessed under the assistive technology category.
Devices need NDIS prior approval and an initial appointment will be required for our Podiatrists to assess your clinical need and determine the best device to supply.
