Improved access to community ultrasound diagnostics

Posted by Communications Team on 28 February 2013 |

Media release | Counties Manukau Health has taken the opportunity to expand a successful pilot initiative to increase access to enable more than 4,600 people  in the next 6 months to get ultrasounds ordered by their GP (but paid for by the DHB) from community radiology providers. This is instead of going on to a hospital waiting list. This means that people can see a GP, and, when appropriate, be referred to a community radiologist and not have to join the public hospital waiting list for diagnosis.
