The Emergency Assessment Fund is an innovative Eastern Bay of Plenty collaborative health concept. The fund will help those who have serious health problems which require urgent investigation where the hospital system is overloaded, and where the patients are financially disadvantaged. Determination of the seriousness of their illness, will assist the hospital prioritise their treatment. All monies donated stay to help community in the local area.

  • General practitioners refer their patients to a Specialist Review Clinic for further investigation, when they consider the waiting period for investigation and diagnosis is prejudicial to their patient’s health.
  • The Emergency Assessment Fund will then pay for the investigation of those patients with urgent health problems, by referring them to an appropriate specialist.
  • Patients investigated who have a serious medical problem requiring urgent treatment, will be referred to the public hospital with their results and with the GPs approval.
