New Zealand has announced it will launch its own new physiotherapy services within its Health, Schools and Ageing service.
Health and Schools Minister Steve Norman said the new service would be introduced in 2017 and would be accessible to anyone who wanted to learn about the latest therapies.
“This will allow New Zealanders to gain the confidence and knowledge that comes with having access to our National Physiotherapy Service,” Mr Norman said.
New Zealand Health and Schools said the service would also include support for those who had experienced problems with their own healthcare system.
The new service will be available in primary and secondary schools and will offer individualised treatments and consultation for patients.
It will also offer a number of new services for people with physical or mental health conditions.
Health and School Minister Steve Johnson said the launch of the new services would be a “game changer” for New Zealand and that it would enable the Government to “get our house in order”.
“This is about giving people the confidence to seek help when they need it and that’s what we’re doing in New England.”
We’re going to get to the bottom of this and make sure we’re not putting more people at risk of losing their care.
“The New Zealand Health Service (NZHS) is the national health service for New England, comprising six regional and four metropolitan areas.
More:New ZealandHealth said the services would cover a range of conditions and include treatment for asthma, obesity, anxiety, depression, dementia and substance abuse.
In the Northern Territory, the New South Wales Government will also launch a new National Physiology Service in 2017.
Mr Johnson said people who had physical or psychological conditions could also seek out services.”
These people may not be able to get a physiotherapy session through Health Services but they’re still entitled to a consultation to make sure they’re well and are getting the support they need.
“Mr Norman said in the Northern Territories there were currently no services for mental health or addiction.”
I want to reassure people that we are going to provide people with the best care and support to make that transition,” he said.”
Our National Physio Service will enable people to get the right care for their health, wellbeing and wellbeing.
“”There are a number different ways that you can get the National Physioship, depending on your age, your condition and the particular type of health or physical condition that you’re dealing with.
“New South Wales is not the only state to launch its National PhysioloServices service, but it is the first state to do so in the region.
In the ACT, a new service for people in mental health care will also be launched in the ACT in 2018.
A number of other states will be launching their own physiotherapy plans later this year.
