Transfer of Care and Test Results Responsibility

The Transfer of Care and Test Results responsibility has now been signed by the CMOs at Manatū Hauora, Te Whatu Ora and Te Aka Whai Ora and published on the Te Whatu Ora website. This work has been through several iterations with feedback from regional and local clinical governance groups and clinical leaders across the New Zealand.

 

Clinical leaders will now look towards embedding the principles in operational procedures.

Auckland PHO’s Discretionary Funding Pool (DFP)

Are you utilising Auckland PHO’s DFP?

 

The DFP is a discretionary pool of funding that clinicians can access to assist patients who require support funding for a range of procedures and diagnostics.  There are also options for discreet funding support to assist with consultation payments.

 

Note that in the event the practice has not used their funding allocation by 30 June, it will be returned to the DFP ‘pot’ and reallocated in the new financial year.
