Child and youth health coordination service


Cay-C service to end - limited service from 1 October 2018 (Waikato)

Waikato DHB has exited the child and youth coordination services (Cay-C) contract, effective 17 December 2018. Due to staff changes both before and after the DHB decision we have limited service operating. Pinnacle MHN is disappointed at the loss of these services and understand it will impact our general practices, children and families. 

Midwives, family doctors and well child/tamariki ora providers continue to provide their services in the same way.
