Pharmacy perspective sought for Urgent Care SLA

The Urgent Care Service Level Alliance (UCSLA) is seeking expressions of interest for the group’s pharmacy perspective.

UCSLA is helping provide the most appropriate urgent care options for people by providing clinical leadership to the development of processes and services that reduce Emergency Department attendances and hospital admission rates.

With a priority to meet the needs of the Canterbury population, this includes developing and refining community-based acute demand services, promoting shorter stay in Emergency Departments, supporting timely discharge from hospital, targeting patients with the greatest capacity to benefit, and supporting those with a high level of need to access appropriate urgent care in the community rather than in hospitals.

The terms of reference are available here and the CCN Remuneration Policy here.

If you are interested in submitting a nomination, please complete the expression of interest form and send to Rebecca Muir, Facilitator, at rebecca.muir@ccn.health.nz before 5pm, Friday 13 April.
