Refer for home supports, residential care or home IV therapy
POAC funding is available for short term convalescence following illness or hospital admission.
This is usually for a period of 3-5 days and funding approval is based on the individual patient need. If longer than this is required, call our team to discuss.
For urgent referrals outside of normal hours (Mon-Fri, 0830 - 1700), please call (09) 535 7218 to discuss with our after hours team.
If the request is for post discharge Home IV Therapy or Residential Care, the patient should remain in hospital until a POAC co-ordinator has confirmed services.
