Workcare - ACC Stay At Work (SAW)

Bureta physiotherapy in partnership with APM workcare provides Stay at Work contracts for ACC.


Once your case manager has referred you for a SAW contract one of the physiotherapist from our team specialising in vocational rehabilitation will come out and assess your worksite and provide ACC with a detailed report on your needs to return to full work.

If required we will then also take you through the appropriate rehabilitation program to achieve the goals set out in the report  There are three stages within the SAW service, each of which reflects a different level of complexity and specifies the required levels of support from vocational providers:
  • Stage 1 – Early Return to Work
  • Stage 2 – Graduated Return to Work
  • Stage 3 – Continued Interventions
Clients can enter the service at Stage 1 or Stage 2
