Tender Overview

With the current Independent Medical Examinations (IME) panel arrangement ending on 30 June 2021, WorkCover will advertise for new IME panel members for 2021-2024 through an open tender which will be released via the QTenders website on 11 January 2021.  The tender will close at 10am on Tuesday 9 February 2021. 

The IME panel is a team of medical professionals who provide WorkCover with additional information or clarification on specific medical aspects of a worker's injury, and/or to provide workers with a permanent impairment assessment.

The IME panel is made up of specialists trained in specific areas of clinical knowledge. The purpose of the IME panel is not to provide treatment, but rather conduct independent medical examinations and then provide a report to WorkCover.

The aim of this tender is to ensure the best possible coverage across all specialties and to continue our commitment to improving services.  WorkCover are seeking specialists for the following areas: 

  1. Cardiology
  2. Dermatology
  3. Ear Nose and Throat
  4. General Surgeon
  5. Neurology
  6. Neurosurgeon
  7. Occupational Physician
  8. Ophthalmology
  9. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon
  10. Orthopaedic:
    1. General
    2. Ankle

WorkCover will provide a simple, streamlined process and engage expert, independent medical practitioners to help us with our panel selection. A standard tender process typically reviews suppliers based on their experience, quality, time and cost – but as cost won’t be evaluated for the IME, applicants can expect experience, quality and time criteria.   The actual criteria and questions will not be released until the tender is published.  More help on responding to Queensland Government tenders can be found here.

Applicants are not required to be based in Queensland, however must be willing to travel to Queensland for regular appointments as required.  Specialists will be required to meet minimum mandatory criteria and meet service level standards throughout the contract term if appointed.

The final tender will be published on the Queensland Government QTenders website. If you have not already, please ensure you have registered as a supplier on the QTenders website so you are able to quickly access the application documents.
