Tui Ora Family Health is a multi-doctor GP service at the Maru Wehi complex in Maratahu Street. We deliver high quality primary medical care at a low cost. A kaiāwhina in our practice works alongside whānau, advocating for them and helping deal with the different factors that can impact on a person’s health and wellbeing. 

We have a nurse practitioner Jenny Kissick who can prescribe a range of treatments in specialist areas including diagnosis, ordering and interpreting test results, prescribing medication, referrals and providing follow up care.  Read more about her role.

Our practice includes four medical practitioners Dr Gal Carmi, Dr Jason Peterken, Dr Freddy Gan and Dr Jarrod Newell as well as practice nurses and associated administrative support. We are a Cornerstone accredited practice and a member of Midlands Health Network PHO.

Services include the management of long-term conditions such as diabetes, minor surgical procedures, ACC consultations and services related to children's and youth health.

Tui Ora Family Health is part of large health and social services provider Tui Ora. This allows us to take a holistic view of care, ensuring our clients can access a wider range of services and overcome many traditional barriers to health and wellbeing.
