Nursing Services (NUS) are an essential service that ensures that ACC Clients have appropriate access to community nursing services. ACC has an ongoing requirement to purchase this service. The current Nursing Services contract has been in place since 1 March 2018 and was issued to incumbent suppliers only. The contract is now being opened to applications from new suppliers.
NUS consist of injury treatment predominantly in the home for Clients who cannot readily access clinic based services, or whose injury needs cannot be managed by their General Practice Team (GPT).
ACC is looking for suitably qualified and experienced Nursing Service suppliers who:
(a) Provide predominantly home based Nursing Services, and
(b) Have a nursing workforce with the appropriate level of skill and experience specified in the Nursing Service Schedule (refer to attachment appendix 2)
The term for the provision of the Nursing Services is the period from the date of signing until 28 February 2021. There are two further terms of renewal of 24 months each.
An open application process is being used for new suppliers to be on boarded onto an existing open panel contract. Respondents who demonstrate they can meet ACC’s contract requirements, quality threshold, and subsequent due diligence checks will be awarded a contract.
