Locally owned and operated Onsite Ultrasound has been providing high-quality ultrasound services for people in Hawke’s Bay for 14 years.

E-Referrals can now be made to Onsite Ultrasound using CareSelect.

Onsite Ultrasound practice manager Kelly Fraser says the new tailor-made e-Referral form will help make the pathway easier for doctors to refer patients.

“The e-Referral form is quick and easy to use, saves time and is way more secure compared to faxing, emailing, phoning or handing a patient a paper referral,” she says.

“E-Referrals are definitely the way forward.”

Onsite Ultrasound has a team of 10 people and operates out of two sites – one in Napier and one in Hastings.

“We provide high-quality ultrasound services using the latest technology and equipment,” Kelly says.

Services on offer include pregnancy, general abdominal, small parts, pelvic, vascular, obstetric and musculoskeletal scans. Ultrasound-guided cortisone injections are also available.

Kelly says customer service is a big focus for the small, friendly team.

“Our team provides high-quality imaging alongside great customer service with friendly faces every step of the way.”


Urgent reports available

Kelly says urgent reports are available within the hour if required.

“Our general wait times for scans is minimal and we also put aside appointments every day for urgent cases should they arise,” she says.

“We also get our reports out as soon as possible after a scan has been completed.”

Free ACC scans are also available for patients who qualify (a surcharge applies for radiologist procedures).

“We’ve had lots of positive feedback over the years and pride ourselves on the high-quality service we provide and our friendly team.”
