The successful parties will develop, deliver and manage the core services independently of the NMBA and AHPRA.

The Service will facilitate timely access to services for nurses and midwives to assist in the management of health impairment. This includes a focus on education and awareness raising about health impairment for nurses, midwives, students, education providers and employers. Read more in the related news item.
