To use the consumer dashboard you will need to enter a full name, date of birth and Consumer Eligibility (CE) number (found at the top of all EnableNSW letters).

To use the prescriber dashboard you will need your Department of Health (DOH) sign in details; the consumer’s full name and date of birth.

  • Once logged into the dashboard:
    • Click the ‘Equipment’ tab
    • Locate the item that requires repair
    • Select ‘Repair’ from the drop down list
    • Click ‘Go’.

Please note that the status must be showing the item as delivered before a repair can be requested on-line. If the status is not marked as delivered, please request the repair via telephone.

  • Complete the on-line form ensuring you have the information required including the reason for repair, repair address and contact details.
