NDIS NSW North Pilot - streamlining requests for stock and contract items
Together with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), we are working on a pilot to simplify requests for a broad range of cost effective aids and equipment for NDIS participants. A simpler application process for these products is now being piloted with Hunter New England, Mid North Coast and Central Coast Local Health Districts.
