ACC’s current Pain management contracts will expire on 31 December 2016.

ACC is looking for Suppliers who have the capability, experience and infrastructure to deliver a redesigned and single pain management service for clients at risk of, or suffering from persistent pain. This new service will replace the existing 8 pain management services from December 2016. The new service focuses on providing comprehensive pain management support and education across the full spectrum of health care from primary care to tertiary care. The intended outcomes of this process will include improving outcomes and experience for customers, financial sustainability and governance of the ACC scheme and to support more successful injury prevention activities.

For more information on redesigning Pain Management Services including a summary of key stages of the project and key documentation, go to our ACC website at and in the search field type Redesigning Pain Management.

What's important to us?

ACC is interested in hearing from Suppliers currently working in or have recent experience working in a multidisciplinary team or collaborative environment. Suppliers must have either a senior clinical team with at least two years’ experience each or a single clinical director with 5 years’ fulltime work equivalent experience in the context of pain management. A senior clinical team should at a minimum include a medical practitioner, physiotherapist, occupational therapist and psychologist. Suppliers must be able to demonstrate knowledge and application of clinical best practice and service innovation in the context of pain management. In addition, they must have service providers with appropriate levels of pain management experience including relevant qualifications and professional memberships. Evidence of a client centric service delivery and ability to provide a culturally sensitive service is also essential.

Interested? What's next?

We’re also holding a series of webinar briefings in June and early July to explain this process, what it means for potential applicants, and how the new service is different from existing pain services. Session details and an indicative timeline for the tender activity is outlined in the attached document.

To register for the briefings email with the details of the session you’d like to attend. We’ll then provide further instructions.
