Primary Health team
Our primary health team includes our GP clinic as well as community nursing and kaiāwhina services in the areas of cancer support, the management of long-term conditions, and asthma.
Our Long Term Conditions team provides advanced assessment and care plans as well as monitoring for adults with lung disease, diabetes and/or heart disease. Our kaiāwhina helps clients work through those care plans, providing further education, support and advocacy.
The Cancer Support Nursing service helps all clients at any stage of their cancer journey with a registered nurse and kaiāwhina providing medical support, co-ordination and advocacy.
Our asthma nurse assesses, supports and educates people about asthma as well as liaising with GPs to put an asthma management plan in place. She also helps clients with obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
