ACCESS TO SERVICES BY PERSONS WITH A DISABILITY

Accessing services can be a significant issue for those with a disability. People with a disability resulting in a core activity restriction were more likely to have had difficulty accessing services (40%) compared to those people without any disability or long term health condition (28%). Doctors (16%), dentists (15%), Commonwealth income support, health and related services (14%) and telecommunication services (12%) were the most common services that people with a core activity restriction had difficulty accessing (see table 43).
