If you think you or someone else may have a suffered a concussion playing sport:
It’s better to play it safe and have your injury assessed by an experienced professional before you return to play, than risk further injury.
We run Auckland’s most comprehensive sports concussion service, staffed by medical experts with vast experience in rugby and sports concussion. We aim to see patients within a week of the injury and consultations are free of charge*.
We offer an early accurate diagnosis, advice and follow up, as well as a structured return to sport, based on the national sporting code.
*Consultations are free of charge so long as your appointment is within 10 days of your injury. This service (previously funded by ACC) is currently fully funded by Axis Sports Medicine.
The Axis Sports Concussion Centre of Excellence was initially a pilot programme fully funded by the ACC between 2017 and 31 December 2019. With the withdrawal of ACC funding, Axis have committed to funding the Sports Concussion clinic in the short term and will continue to offer free consultations.
We are actively looking for a research partner to help support this initiative long-term – so we can secure a pathway for early access to care for patients (and referrers) and continue important clinical research.
No referral is needed for activity-based concussions seen within 10 days of sustaining an injury.
Activity-based concussions booked more than 10 days after sustaining an injury will require a referral from a GP, physio or other medical professional in order to book in with our Sport and Exercise Physicians.
