The Commission is working on the best path for people who have made a similar complaint but who were not involved in the actual case.
Before bringing a similar complaint to the Commission, anyone who considered they were presently being discriminated against by the same policy would first need an assessment by a Needs Assessment and Service Coordination (NASC) organisation to access most health and disability support services funded by the Ministry of Health or a District Health Board.
The Human Rights Commission supports this petition.
You can read the Human Rights Commission’s submission to the Select Committee here.
A list of NASCs is available at the Ministry of Health’s website or by telephoning the Ministry’s disability number 0800 DSD MOH (0800 373 664).
For older people (that is, people over 65 or aged between 50-64) who have similar needs, information is available on the Ministry’s website or by calling the local District Health Board or local hospital and asking to talk to the NASC team for older people.
This legislation was passed under urgency without the usual opportunities for public input.
The legislation is known as the New Zealand Public Health and Disability Amendment Act (No2) 2013.
