Referral Expectations

Patients can be referred to Rangiora Clinic by their GP or health professional. Referrals will be triaged and graded. Some procedures may not be provided at Rangiora Clinic and in these cases patients will be on-referred to an appropriate service. If a referral is accepted, patients will be contacted for an appointment.

Self-referrals are welcome. In your initial consultation, we can discuss your needs and whether we are the right service for you.
