Your patient is in good hands

The team of specialists who work out of Rodney Surgical Centre are all experts in their chosen fields and can undertake almost any common day-stay operation and procedure you require for your patient.
You can arrange a referral via our Referrer’s Assistant, or you can give us a call on 0800 425 007 or email us at referrals@rodneysurgicalcentre.co.nz

The Referrers Assistant

It’s a one-stop service, provided free to GPs.

Rodney Surgical’s Referrers Assistant service matches the best surgeon to meet your patient’s requirements for their surgical needs.

As a GP you have two options,

  • send a generic referral (no specialist specified) to Rodney Surgical and the Best Match process as outlined below will be followed or,
  • nominate your preferred specialist and we will make the necessary arrangements to ensure your patients receive a timely appointment.

The Best Match process is designed to remove the workload involved in arranging specialist appointments. Sometimes, your first choice of specialist may not be available or no longer does the particular procedure required. This often means ringing numerous specialists to find one that is available, is able to manage the clinical issue referred, and is able to see the patient in a timely manner. The Best Match process at Rodney Surgical will ensure your patient is matched with the right specialist, in the best location and in a timely manner. Rodney Surgical liaises with all specialists providing services in the Auckland and Northland regions.

How to refer a patient?

Choose one of these options:

  1. Use Careselect in the online Healthlink portal using ‘The Referrer’s Assistant’ search term. 
  2. EDI (Electionic Data Intechange) to ‘rodneysc’’ via the Healthlink portal.
  3. Fax your referral to 09 425 0115 or email to referrals@rodneysurgicalcentre.co.nz.

How does the Best Match process work?

  1. Refer your patient (as above).
  2. Once we have received your referral, Rodney Surgical will liaise with your patient to find a consultation appointment.
  3. Rodney Surgical will notify you their consultation time, place and specialist.

Benefits of using the Referrer’s Assistant:

  • All referrals are managed by healthcare professionals – confidentiality is a priority.
  • If the specialist is unavailable we will source an alternative and correspond with you and the patient directly.
  • It is an efficient use of a GP’s time as it avoids patients coming back to you when they cannot get an appointment.
  • We work with your patient to find the most convenient solution for them providing tailored customer service.
