RNZCUC designates certain urgent care facilities as suitable for training in urgent care. These fall in two categories:
- Community urgent care clinics
- Hospital emergency departments.
Both types of facilities generally comply with RNZCUC standards for:
- Facility requirements, covered in RNZCUC’s urgent care standard.
- Supervision, as detailed in the supervision policy.
- Suitable training environment.
Most, if not all, accredited urgent care clinics are approved as training facilities. Some urgent care clinics are not accredited to RNZCUC’s urgent care standard but offer comparable services. They may be approved as suitable for training, subject to approval by the Facility Audit Subcommittee, who apply the here is a Approved Training Facility (ATF) policy. The list of current ATF, along with a map, is below.
Applicants should confirm that a facility is on the ATF list before commencing the training programme. If the proposed facility is not on the list, the applicant may request that the FAS review the facility. To initiate this process, complete this form and send it to the office.
