Update from WorkCover NSW

10 Sep 2013

WorkCover NSW has asked CAPA NSW to update our Members about recent changes:

"WorkCover NSW is undertaking a review of its allied health provider framework. This review includes the mandatory WorkCover NSW psychologists and counsellors training course. As a result of this review, it has been decided that WorkCover will not be continuing with the above training course in its current form beyond 30 November 2013.

"As such, a moratorium on applications for WorkCover approval numbers from allied health providers will commence on Monday 9 September 2013. WorkCover approved allied health providers who have not completed the training (a mandatory requirement for the issue of a WorkCover approval number), will be deactivated in December 2013. This is a process undertaken periodically."
