Referral Expectations

Manukau SuperClinic™  Referrals and Appointments Centre receives all referrals.

These are then forwarded to Module 4. 

A paediatrician reviews all referrals which may be accepted or declined. 

If a referral is accepted the following occurs:

  • an appointment is offered
  • is placed on a waiting list
  • is managed as a 'virtual' appointment with a clinical plan of care being communicated to the referrer and/or caregiver.

Your Family Doctor / Referring Health Professional  is advised of the outcome for all referrals - whether accepted or declined.

Appointments:

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 a reminder text is sent to the parent/caregiver prior to the appointment. 

Please ensure the Family Doctor / Referring Health Professional has the patient's correct contact details. 

It is important that if the patient is unable to attend an appointment with Kidz First Outpatient Care the parent/caregiver informs Manukau SuperClinic™ at the earliest opportunity. This appointment can then be offered to another patient.
