Welcome to our Monday Panui/Memo where we provide you with a few short messages relevant to Auckland PHO Practices.
Changing Accuretic Medications to a Suitable Alternative
We note that there are several patients who have been prescribed Accuretics who have yet to be seen by their GP for a change to a suitable alternative or a claim for $100 has not been completed.
Refer to your Practice Mōhio Accuretic Patient List report for the full list of eligible patients. This week Emma Pickles, Auckland PHO’s Project Manager will be in touch with practices to provide the names of patients not yet seen or claimed for with an offer of back-office support if needed, for example, contacting patients.
Ordering Auckland PHO Resources
Auckland PHO supplies several resources to practices including enrolment forms, lavalavas and kete with a baby wrap and resources for a baby when they have their 6-week immunisations.
To order our resources, use this link Resource Order Form or phone the office 379 4022.
Police Background Safety Checks
A reminder that all staff working in a general practice are required to have a Police Background Safety Check. Auckland PHO provides a service to facilitate Checks on Practices’ behalf.
We have produced a reference document for practices Auckland PHO Background Safety Check, designed for both those who utilise the Auckland PHO service or undertake themselves. The document can be found in our Auckland PHO website library – Forms, HR and PHO Support (password: aucklandpho).
Please note that the Vulnerable Children’s Act requires employees to ask specific questions at an interview for Core Health Workers and a sample of these questions can be found on pages 38/39 of the Safety Check document.
