If it’s difficult for whānau to come to us then we go to them. Ever on the look out to reduce barriers to health support for our whānau, we run clinics at Motatau, Waikare, Russell, Pipiwai, Rawhitiroa, Tautoro, Whakapara and Mangakahia monthly and bi-monthly. We try to take a range of health and social services clinicians, nurses and support staff and of course our GP Dr Tamara Birchall. Free health checks, referrals, specialist advice and on the spot services are provided plus a kapu tī!
