Mandated health services
Victorian public health services listed in Schedules 1 or 5 of the Health Services Act, 1988 (Vic) are referred to as mandated health services.
Mandated health services are legally obliged to use our collective agreements to purchase the goods and services our agreements cover from the contracted suppliers specified in them.
Mandated health services are also required to comply with the requirements of the HSV Purchasing Policies and other legislative reporting obligations specified in the Health Services Act 1988 (Vic).
Conversely, eligible services can access our collective agreements optionally if they qualify for access.
