Service agreements

Service agreements between a state or territory government and each of its local hospital networks ensure NHR payments to and from the state pool account to the local hospital network are made in an efficient, timely and accurate manner in accordance with those estimates, and in accordance with the National Health Reform Agreement.

Service estimates, expressed as NWAU, are included in each service agreement as a basis of determining the Commonwealth Government activity based funding contribution.

For more information about service agreements, or to obtain a copy of a service agreement, please contact the Department of Health in the relevant state or territory.
