SWEP Prescriber Communique - Home Modifications Update

 

Dear SWEP Prescribers

I am pleased to announce that the revised home modification service is in the final stages of testing and we are on the verge of releasing the model.  We anticipated the release would be this month, however we have decided to postpone the release to next month to finalise adjustments to the online application.  SWEP acknowledges the postponement may be an inconvenience for some Prescribers, however our preference is to deliver the best service possible and we believe a short delay will achieve this.
