Hospital Referral to Urgent Care/GP Clinic

The process for hospital referrals under POAC:

When a patient attends Urgent Care with a hospital discharge summary stating for further POAC funded treatment, this includes the following principles:

  • The Urgent Care clinic generates the POAC referral/case number when the patient attends
  • The initial consult and all treatment for this episode of care should be invoiced to POAC
  • ACC surcharges are funded by POAC, where relevant
  • Hyperemesis includes all presentations for duration of the pregnancy
  • There should be no cost to the patient
  • Any queries please call POAC (09) 535 7218 to discuss
