Prime Response in Medical Emergency

PRIME services review - an update.

Earlier this year, the National Ambulance Sector Office (NASO), on behalf of Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) and the Ministry of Health, asked for formal feedback on the PRIME (Primary Response in Medical Emergencies) service.

The purpose of this feedback was to better understand the issues being raised and to inform the above parties on whether a formal review was required. 

A lot of feedback was received from a range of sources, including St John, PRIME practices and practitioners, Primary Health Organisations (PHOs), Rural Service Level Alliance Teams (SLATs), PRIME committees, Emergency Care Coordination Teams (ECCTs), National Rural Health Advisory Group (NRHAG) members and members of the New Zealand Rural General Practice Network (NZRGPN).
