The National Cervical Screening Programme (NCSP) and BreastScreen Aotearoa (BSA) are re-designing support to screening services contracts
NCSP and BSA are re-designing support to screening services contracts. These services include a range of activities focussed on providing individualised support for women to attend breast and cervical screening.
BSA and NCSP are looking for innovative solutions to reduce equity gaps and are seeking feedback from health and social sector organisations to help shape the future of support services. This will build on information gathered as part of a 2014 consultation and gives potential providers and other stakeholders the opportunity to be actively involved in the design process with the National Screening Unit (NSU).
The NSU issued a request for information (RFI) on 21 July 2015. Further information can be found on GETS – reference number 14203563.
Feedback can also be provided through attending a workshop. Organisations do not need to be planning on being part of a future contestable tender process to attend. Workshops are planned for:
- 17 August (Auckland)
- 18 August (Wellington)
- 27 August (Rotorua).
Workshops are likely to run from 11am to 3pm. Catering will be provided but you will need to fund your own transport.
Please email supporttoscreeningRFI@moh.govt.nz to RSVP for a workshop – let us know the number of people likely to attend, the name of your organisation, and your contact details.
An additional workshop may take place on 28 August depending on the level of interest - the location for this is yet to be determined. If you would like to us to hold an additional workshop in an area near you, please let us know.
If you do not want to be part of the RFI process or be involved in a workshop, but would still like to be kept informed about the service re-design, please contact us by email (supporttoscreeningRFI@moh.govt.nz).
We are interested in getting a broad range of feedback and ideas about the future of these services. Please share this information with relevant networks of organisations or groups you think would be interested in this work.
