Kidz First Outpatient Care - Developmental, Disability and Behavioural
Manukau SuperClinic™ Referrals and Appointments Centre receives all referrals.
Following acceptance of the referral it is then prioritised by a paediatrican.
This may result in the following:
- appointment offered
- placed on a waiting list
- managed as a 'virtual' appointment with a clinical plan of care being communicated to the referrer and/or caregiver.
Once a suitable appointment time is agreed with the parent/caregiver a letter is sent to confirm appointment details. A reminder letter is sent the week before the appointment and either a reminder phone call or text is sent to the parent/caregiver prior to the appointment.
