Health Professionals

Do you have a referral for us or require a skill refresh? We have what you need - see below.

We are a committed and dedicated charity striving to meet the highest standards, while working with the community and you, our health care professionals. Asthma Waikato provides education for health professionals in how to provide asthma and COPD management, education and support.

However, your input and advice is critical to help us better understand the needs of health care providers and patients alike, and so that we can continue to improve our service. Working with you is essential to gaining information we need to deliver our service and help you deliver yours.

Asthma Waikato accepts referrals for:

Asthma Education

Our priorities are:

AGE - we see children aged 0-15 years of age.
Referrals for 15+ are generally seen at the Asthma Clinic at Waikato Hospital.
SEVERITY – severe referrals will be seen as a priority then moderate and mild cases.
REFERRALS – NOTE: We accept self referrals for asthma education - get in touch.



Refer to us for asthma education.

Spirometry Testing

Asthma Waikato no longer takes spirometry referrals or offers spirometry testing. However, if spirometry testing is required and is not something that is offered in your local GP clinic, we recommend contacting Priya Pattni, Clinical Physiologist CRFS at Lung Heart Diagnostics or emailing her a referral letter. Phone: 022 519 1160 email: info@lungheartdiagnostics.co.nz. Priya not only does spirometry testing but she also does other specialised respiratory tests too.
