The Australasian Professional Society on Alcohol and other Drugs

HPCA is seeking applications from registered drug and alcohol psychiatry and physicians specialising in drug and alcohol dependence assessment and treatment located in NSW to become health assessors on the Council Directed Health Assessment List (the List).

The List includes health assessors who may be engaged to assess the health of registered health practitioners under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law (NSW). Health assessors provide assessment reports that assist the health professional councils and impaired registrants panels to determine if a registered health practitioner is impaired under the National Law (NSW). If a registered health practitioner is impaired, further action may be recommended by the health assessor. This includes restrictions on practice and other options available to the relevant health professional council.

The List has been established to support the timely and flexible provision of health assessments across NSW. You can apply, via a single application process to work with all 15 health professional councils in NSW.You can apply for the List at any time, however in order to be considered for the first round, your application will need to be submitted by COB 31 August 2020.
