Inborn Errors Metabolism (IEM) Grant
There have been changes to the way the Inborn Errors of Metabolism Grant is being processed moving forward.
Patients diagnosed with PKU must re-apply for the IEM Grant every 12 months.
It is the responsibility of all patients to schedule review appointments, as required by their treating metabolic specialists and to ensure applications are provided to the Department prior to their annual review date.
Metabolic Specialists will be required to notify the Department of patients who fail to comply with the conditions of the IEM program. Following this advice, and if the situation is not adequately addressed, the IEM grant may be withdrawn.
The Department will not issue reminder notices. Grant payments will cease if the re-application is not received.
