Making an Appointment
If the condition is the result of injury, ACC documentation can be completed at the Hand Clinic (please note work related gradual process injury claims must be completed by a GP).
On your First Appointment
You will be asked to complete a registration form on arrival. Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to complete this. Please bring any referral or ACC information to your first appointment.
Your first appointment will take about 40 minutes and will begin with a comprehensive assessment. Your hand therapist will explain the diagnosis and discuss treatment options with you. Your consent is essential - during your rehabilitation you have the right to refuse treatment or request a second opinion at any time. You are welcome to be accompanied by a support person.
For conditions covered by ACC there is a surcharge of $45 (or $50 if not paid on the day) for the first appointment and $17 (or $22 if not paid on the day) for the second and third appointments. There is no surcharge for any further follow up appointments. Splinting costs are covered by ACC*.
We welcome private patients and patients covered by medical insurance. Please contact us for more information about cost.
If you require exercise equipment as part of your rehabilitation this will be charged to you. The charge will vary depending on your requirements. Your therapist will discuss these options with you during your appointment.
