From 1 July 2018, non-government organisations (NGOs) contracted by NSW Health to provide alcohol and other drug treatment services will have five core performance indicators (PIs) included in contracts.
Organisations may already be reporting against these or similar indicators; standard wording and application will ensure consistency and a streamlined approach.
Resources have been developed to aid in understanding and meeting the PI requirements.
