Capital & Coast DHB Women's Health Obstetrics & Maternity Service
Women's Clinics - Acute Assessment
The Acute Assessment Unit acts as a front door to the Women's Health Service for women requiring acute assessment for obstetric and gynaecological conditions. Women seen in this unit are referred by their primary healthcare provider e.g. GP, LMC. Women's Health provides acute assessment services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. During the hours of 8am - 6pm Monday to Friday (excluding Public Holidays) women are seen at the Women's Clinics - Acute Assessment. Outside these hours the Obstetric and Gynaecology Registrar can be contacted by the primary healthcare provider and arrangements made to see the woman in the appropriate inpatient area.
