HART Services is still operating through the COVID-19 pandemic. However, due to Government directives, we have needed to scale back our services.
Clients can still call to book a trip, if their transport needs are essential e.g medical appointments that can’t be undertaken by telehealth. Trips into Queensland are dependent on current border restrictions.
We are able to provide limited transport for clients who are in self-isolation for contact with suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19. This will be provided by trained staff. If you believe you may have contracted the virus, call the National Coronavirus Helpline on 1800 020 080 or seek medical advice, before making an appointment, as per directives from the Department of Health.
We are still taking on new clients and accepting referrals through My Aged Care.
HART Services continues to provide Home Care Package services and NDIS support services.

Additional precautions are being taken to maintain high standards of infection control. All team members have been directed to take leave from work or volunteering if they display any cold or flu like symptoms, or have had close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19.
All workers have been directed to complete COVID-19 infection control training. All workers use hand hygiene before and after every episode of physical contact. All vehicles are stocked with hand sanitiser and cleaning equipment, and procedures for cleaning are in place. Frequently touched areas such as door handles, grab bars and seat belts are treated with disinfectant spray or wipes between passengers and all vehicles are given an additional thorough clean at the end of each day.
Social buses have been suspended and will resume once it is safe to do so.
