Public submissions welcomed for review of ACC’s Sensitive Claims Pathway
In October last year in response to an online peition signed by nearly 4000 New Zealanders, the Hon. Dr. Nick Smith promised the New Clinical Pathway for the Treatment of Sensitive Claims would be subject to an Independent clinical review. That day has now arrived.
Professional bodies around New Zealand are currently organizing to make both written and verbal presentations to the review panel, headed by Dr Barbara Disley past Chief Executive of the Mental Health Foundation and the inaugural chair of the Mental Health Commission.
The Review Panel is also hoping to receive submissions from members of the public and anyone affected by the changes to the treatment of Sensitive Claims by ACC.
Individuals’ submissions can be made in writing, or via audio or video recordings. These submissions can be sent via email to:
Or mailed to:
Indpendent Clincal Review Panel
PO Box 1039
It is imperative that ACC and the National Government receive a clear message; that this New Clinical Pathway has been an unmitigated disaster, and led to the destruction of a world leading system for the support and treatment of those affected by sexual abuse and assault in Aotearoa, New Zealand.
