Waikato DHB has exited the child and youth coordination services (Cay-C) contract, effective 17 December 2018. This includes Before School (B4SC) outreach and the lost to provider service. Due to staff changes both before and after the DHB decision we have limited service operating from 1 October.
Pinnacle MHN are disappointed at the loss of these services and understand it will impact you in your practice, along with our children and families. We thank our team and yours for all the amazing work that has been done to support our Waikato children to receive all their important milestone checks. We will be closely following further decisions from the DHB on what services may be offered by way of replacement.
We're sure you will have questions and concerns and we're happy to hear those and relay them to the DHB where appropriate. Please contact Tracy Jackson, Pinnacle MHN Starting Well programme lead.
