Vital health service CODI under review

A VITAL service helping thousands of people access health services is set for a shake-up.

In the past six months Co-ordinating Organization for the Disabled in Ipswich Inc, known as CODI, has given 650 people 12,000 lifts to medical appointments.

But the not-for-profit organisation is about to undergo a review which could see its services scaled back.

The CODI board has called a special meeting to discuss a "number of issues" identified internally by the new management team.

CODI's general manager Pat Morgan, who joined the organisation less than two months ago, is being tight-lipped on the problems.

However, in a written statement, said the review would "consider how the scope and scale of CODI services can be better aligned to the funding being provided".

CODI is funded through a range of government departments at both a state and federal level. That funding hasn't been cut.

"CODI continues to enjoy the support of the relevant government departments," the statement reads.

"Service improvement strategies will be discussed with these key stakeholders as the review is undertaken."

The special meeting will be held tomorrow.
