The community nursing service plays an important role in shaping the way our whānau engage and experience the health system. Through strong relationships with whānau, patients and Māori Provider Health services our community nursing team support whānau to access health services, and partner with whanau to achieve their goals for wellbeing. The nursing team recieve referrals from a number of sources:
- Outpatient clinics
- Community follow up from a ward referral
- Māori Health provider referrals
- GP referrals to the service.
Based on the referral our team delivers whānau-centred care in the home and at times in the individual’s workplace if this is relevant.
Ask your health provider for a referral.
