Domestic and Family Violence Local Link

Brisbane South PHN is rolling out Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) Local Link across the Brisbane south region to support general practices to respond to domestic and family violence.

This service offers one-point of referral for patients affected by domestic and family violence, as well as advice and support to enable general practices to better identify and respond to domestic and family violence. DFV Local Link Coordinators can also support practices to implement organisational level measures to help your staff to safely and effectively support patients affected by domestic and family violence.

For practices in Redlands and Logan

DFV Local Link is currently available to general practices in the Redlands, Logan, Beaudesert/Jimboomba, and Brisbane areas. You can find out more about available services or arrange a visit to your practice by contacting your DFV Local Link Coordinator.
