Community Health Integration Centre (CHIC)
The Community Health Integration Centre (CHIC) is a single point of entry for referrals and information.
Qualified, experienced health clinicians ensure a patient’s health needs are assessed and they receive timely health care in the most appropriate setting.
The referrals are then sent to the right service so that the patient gets the right health care in the right place as soon as possible.
The CHIC can only receive referrals from registered health professionals. If you are a patient and wish to access the services below, please consult your general practitioner (GP).
Health professionals can refer by emailing a referral to CHIC@tdhb.org.nz
