Referrals/Fees

REFERRALS

We accept private and ACC referrals however you do not have to see a doctor first.

If appropriate we can register an ACC claim for you.

ACC accepts claims if an injury is:

1. caused by an accident, a specific event involving the application of a force or resistance external to the body

2. or a personal injury caused by a series of events. It must involve the application of a force (including gravity) or resistance external to the human body or sudden movement to avoid such a force or a twisting movement of the body.

If symptoms have developed gradually at work, your GP has to lodge an ACC claim for you.

ONWARD REFERRALS

We work closely with GPs, specialists and other health professionals.

Onward referrals are made when we conclude from our assessment there is a need for further investigation or other treatment. We can refer you for an X-ray, Ultrasound Scan or an opinion from an orthopaedic specialist, musculo-skeletal specialist or other health professionals.

Your GP will be informed and get a copy of the results.
