Under the Alternative Provider Medical Services Directions 2004, all APMS contracts must include certain provisions. These provisions are underlined.
Clauses underlined with a are mandatory and should not be amended. The wording of clauses underlined with a is not mandatory, but if the wording is not used, alternative clauses will normally need to included in order to comply with the directions. Please refer to the footnotes for further details.
Other Clauses are not mandatory and may or may not be appropriate to local circumstances. They are only included as suggestions and may be the subject of local discussions and negotiation.
