Paediatric Radiology under POAC

POAC-funded radiology is available for paediatrics (0-15 year olds) where required acutely to avoid same-day hospital admission. Consider prior discussion with a paediatrician.

For all Ultrasound and CT appointments see Auckland Regional HealthPathways, discuss with on-call paediatric service and call POAC with the name of specialist endorsing the investigation to arrange an appointment.
