Mobile Primary Nursing and Health Promotion

Registered Nurses provide general community health and professional nursing care.

This work may be  supported by a Kaiāwhina. Their role is to support whānau or individuals with any social issues identified as obstacles to achieving improved health and well being.

 

Health education, promotion and assessments are available on topics/conditions such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Asthma
  • Strokes
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Unintentional injuries
  • Nutrition

Free checks include:

  • Blood pressure checks
  • Blood sugar levels
  • Cervical screening
  • Specialist ears, nose and throat assessments

We are currently a registered Diabetes Conversations MAPS provider where in-depth, interactive education and support is provided for those identified with long term conditions.

 

For whānau whose tamariki are not accessing Tamariki Ora/Well Child services, we provide support, facilitation and whānau care.
