Updates to ATAPS with NSML

Updates to ATAPS with NSML

As of 1 January 2014, the Northern Sydney Medicare Local Access to Allied Psychological Service (ATAPS) program is updating its referral procedure and pathways.

With the implementation of the new ATAPS referral process, GPs will now be able to send referrals directly to NSML. This will ensure the ATAPS referral process is more accurate, efficient and provides quality and timely care to patients.

The ATAPS team will then contact the Allied Health Provider and arrange for the patient to be seen in a timely manner (generally within 14 days). The new ATAPS referral process will streamline the referral process for GPs and Allied Health Providers as well as provide quality care to patients.

Please look out for more information and the contact person for this change in next months newsletter.
