Fulford Radiology Services

We no longer have a dedicated FRSL website for referrers who used to access MEDREAM from this location, we have since moved the MEDREAM log in to this website. Click on the "login" option on the right hand side and then click on the MedDream link.

Fulford Radiology Services Ltd (Fulford Radiology) is the radiology provider for Taranaki District Health Board (TDHB). While a separate company, it is 100% owned by TDHB and provides all District Health Board-funded radiology services in the Taranaki region with the exception of mammography and breast ultrasound (which is contracted to Taranaki Radiology Ltd).

Fulford offers the full range of high tech imaging facilities and is committed to providing the highest standard of care to patients. General X-ray services are offered throughout Taranaki, with specialised imaging such as CT, MRI, ultrasound, nuclear medicine and interventional procedures carried out in New Plymouth.

Fulford Radiology also caters for a small amount of specialised ACC and insurance and private radiology imaging which is unable to be delivered by the local private radiology provider.

Radiology is a referral only service. A completed referral form needs to be written by a GP, specialist, midwife, physiotherapist or other approved health practitioner that is authorised to request radiology examinations. An examination cannot be performed without a referral form which provides important clinical information to justify the examination and to ensure that the most appropriate imaging is performed.

Generally there is no fee. However, ACC examinations performed do require a co-payment unless the patient is able to present a community services card.

Please ensure you report ten minutes prior to your appointment as Fulford Radiology usually runs on time. Arrival time will be communicated to you when the booking is confirmed. It is important to be aware that if you arrive late for your examination, it is likely you will be rebooked. If you fail to show up for your appointment, the referral will be placed at the end of the waitlist. From time to time, Emergency cases may cause delays, but patients will be informed on arrival if this is the case, and given the opportunity to rebook.

All female patients of childbearing age (12 – 55 years) referred for an X-ray examination of an area between the lower chest and knees, will be asked by the radiographer if they might be pregnant before any examination is undertaken.  If there is a chance you might be pregnant, please contact your referrer.

Your results are sent to your referrer within 3-5 working days.  They will also be copied to your GP unless you tell us otherwise.
