Dear colleagues,


In 2019, Waikato Escalated Care Ltd (WECL) and ACC went into a partnership to test a pilot for shoulder and lower back patient care pathways.

Both ACC and WECL have confidence in the feasibility in this model of care and the care provided under the WECL pilot. The WECL pilot has now come to an end. As such, we would like to thank you for your engagement, support and partnership with the pilot project and care of the clients to date.

While the WECL pilot will continue for clients who are already on the pathway, WECL is no longer accepting new patient referrals on to the pathway. New clients from the Waikato region should be referred through to usual ACC service providers including surgeons or rehabilitation services.

Thank you and best wishes to your practice and patients for 2021 and beyond.


Kind regards

The team at WECL
