The National Travel Assistance Scheme provides financial assistance to people who are referred by their specialist to see another specialist, and need to travel long distances or travel frequently.
Both specialists must be part of a publicly funded health and disability support service, for example, a renal dialysis centre or a specialist disability service.
For further information go to the Ministry of Health National Travel Assistance Scheme page.


Review of the National Travel Assistance Scheme

The Ministry of Health has started a review of the National Travel Assistance (NTA) Scheme and have posted a survey on the Ministry of Health website seeking input from anyone who has used the NTA scheme, supported a patient, or who works with the scheme.  The Ministry are particularly interested in the views of patients and their support people.

Completing the survey will help improve the NTA scheme by providing the Ministry with a range of views about:

  • how people currently experience the NTA
  • the needs of people who travel for treatment, and
  • what improvements could be made to the Scheme.

The survey has now closed.

Please tell us what you think of our services.
