Wellington, Nov 3 NZPA - The National Ambulance Sector Office (NASO) is calling for submissions to improve the way ambulance services are funded.

Currently, the Ministry of Health bulks funds ambulance services, while ACC pays on a fee-for-service basis.

NASO group manager Carol Clayton said the body was seeking submissions on the way services were funded, not the amount.

"Consistent funding between the Ministry of Health and ACC will result in an easier to manage system for providers and address current anomalies that exist due to the different approaches," she said.

Submissions close December 15.
