NSW State Budget 2010-2011: access to health care for people with intellectual disabilities

NSW Health Budget 2010/11 is a 31 page document, available to download here.  While people with intellectual disability are of course entitled to access all health services available to every NSW citizen, the need for specialist health care service continues to be the subject of an active campaign.  The NSW Health budget document includes this line, :

$0.5 million to support people with an intellectual disability and their carers to improve their access to health care. (p.11)
No details are given about where or how this money will be allocated - we are actively seeking clarification, and will get back to you as soon as we know more!
