Community Meetings 2016

As part of the Trust's commitment to community ownership, participation and engagement, the Trust will be attending the annual round of meetings, each hosted by one of the ten 'clinic communities' of Hokianga. The Annual Report 2015/16 will be presented to the community and new trustees will be confirmed or selected. It is an opportunity for people to express what they would like to see in the community's health service, what is working and what isn't, and to ask any questions of the CEO, Chairman and / or local trustees.

Hauora Hokianga Services

The Hokianga model of healthcare has its foundation in what was known as the Hokianga Special Medical Area (1941-1993) which was developed under the visionary leadership of the legendary Dr George McCall Smith.

Comprehensive healthcare services are provided at Rawene Hospital / Health Centre and nine community clinics located throughout the remote regions of Hokianga by an integrated multi-disciplinary team of mobile health practitioners and support staff. Generalist community health nurses cover the full range of nursing services in close association with general practitioners who also cover the medical management of the Hokianga / Rawene Hospital under the Rural Hospital Medicine scope of practice.

Enhanced primary care and disability support services are woven together to create a seamless and efficient model where the needs of patients, whanau, and community are at the centre of care and where barriers to access, such as cost and distance are minimised.

All of the services, including general practice clinics, are provided at no cost at the point of care for enrolled patients.

Hauora Hokianga offers the following broad categories of service:

Hospital Services
Primary Care Services
Disability Support Services
Maternity Services
Mental Health Services
Public Health and Health Promotion
Community Development

Primary health care services are provided in association with Te Tai Tokerau PHO and the hospital, community, maternity, disability support, public health, mental health and oral health services in association with Northland District Health Board (DHB).
