Murupara LMC Incentive Package. Expressions of Interest DUE 21 APRIL 2020

We are seeking:

  • A minimum of two qualified midwives to provide primary maternity care as described in the Section 88 Primary Maternity Service Notice.
  • Pregnancy and parenting information and education delivered to the Murupara community, both in group sessions and individually, to meet the requirements of the Pregnancy and Parenting Information and Education Service Specification.
  • Proactive collaborative practice processes working with agencies to ensure high value integrated service for women and their whanau. These agencies include BOP DHB and Lakes DHB maternity, allied and social service, Well Child Tamariki Ora services, Murupara Medical Center, Te Ika Whenua Hauora, Family Start, Hapainga (stop smoking services), SUDI prevention services and other organisations as relevant.

BOP DHB recognises that the request of this service is above and beyond the payment schedule under Section 88 and also incurs greater costs to the LMC for supporting a remote predominantly Māori community who experiences the various complexities related to post-colonisation and quintile 5 level of deprivation.

The above COVID response primary maternity funding package will be available to women who reside in Murupara or surrounding areas who enrol with a designated LMC between April 2020 – 31st March 2021 (prior LMC enrolments eg. before April 2020 may also be eligible for expanded package). Consideration around the continuation of this funding package will occur over this same time period.

Please register your interest with [email protected] as soon as you receive this email / advertisement.

Please contact Sarah Stevenson if you are interested in this offer but require an extension beyond the 21st April. Extensions may be granted on a case-by-case basis. We understand there is a very tight turn around period due to the urgency created by the current situation.

Sarah will provide you with more information around the next steps, which will include you submitting 1-3 pages describing how you hope to offer this service. We are hoping to attract (at least) 2 midwives to support Murupara.
