UPDATES TO GENERAL PRACTICE
From 2023, the team at WRHN will be changing how general practice updates are distributed with responsibility given back to general practices and practitioners to access information as required. Each week, our team will upload information here for general practice teams to access with an update emailed out to general practice teams each fortnight.
Information uploaded to the WRHN website includes clinical updates, workforce developments and education, as well as the latest information from Te Whatu Ora and Te Aka Whai Ora. We encourage GP teams to save the link to the updates to their favourites bar and to check this page often, as information will be loaded as it is received by our team.
PSAAP Notification 2023
A heads up to practice teams that the Health Payments Integrity Team are going to be conducting a nationwide review in June that focusses on looking at the enrolled population and cross referencing against immigration records to check for enrolment eligibility. All practice teams should have manuals that outline enrolment and eligibility requirements, but please connect with Krystal Boyes (email@example.com) if they need this resource.
Enrolled patients who are identified as being potentially ineligible will be sent letters, so you may have some of your enrolled patients contacting you with queries or asking to demonstrate their updated eligibility evidence.
