Due to capacity issues ACC requires additional General Practitioner/s with Special Interest (GPSI) providers in the Southland, Central Otago (Alexandra, Cromwell, Queenstown), Hawkes Bay and Northland Regions only. ACC are not seeking GPSI suppliers in regions not listed as there are no capacity issues there.

A GPSI is defined as a General Practitioner who has advanced training and/or experience in musculoskeletal medicine. They will complement their primary care role by delivering a high quality, improved access service for musculoskeletal conditions to meet local needs. The GPSI has access to specialist investigations and services, such as MRI and Orthotics, and is able to undertake advanced general practice procedures, such as joint injections and minor surgery.
