The Patient Assistance Transport Scheme (PATS) is a subsidy program that provides money to pay for some travel, escort and accommodation costs when rural and remote South Australians travel over 100 kilometres each way to see a specialist.
The State Government announced a review of the Patient Assistance Transport Scheme in April 2013, and is now is seeking comments from the public, interested parties, and staff following the release of the Patient Assistant Transport Scheme Review Consultation Paper, with consultation closing on 11 October 2013.
Provide feedback in writing before 5pm, 11 October 2013 via email or by post to Dr David Filby, PO Box 287, Rundle Mall, Adelaide, SA 5000.
The Patient Assistance Transport Scheme review is being undertaken by Dr David Filby PSM. Dr Filby has worked extensively across the Australian healthcare landscape in policy and executive roles, and has the right blend of knowledge, skills and experience to carry out this review. The review is investigating all of the key elements of the program and will be examined within the current Patient Assistance Transport Scheme budget allocation. Information about the status of the review is available on the SA Health website.
