The first phase of the Elective Services Review has wound up and we’ve been hugely appreciative of the involvement of the hundreds of stakeholders we’ve been working with through workshops and working groups.

Around 80 sector representatives and ACC staff attended a full day’s session in April.

It was an opportunity for everyone to talk through the findings of the four working groups tasked with looking at patient outcomes, support services and delivery and the implementation of Elective Services.

The working groups have identified a number of key themes, including access, service integration, outcomes, communication, funding and workforce capability and capacity.

The review’s considering the whole treatment pathway for patients, from the time they injure themselves to when they need surgery.

ACC will continue to work closely with the sector throughout the next phase of the review, leading up to implementation beginning in July 2015.
