Day Surgery for Rural NZEQUITABLE ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE
One of the guiding principles of The New Zealand Health Strategy is equitable access for all New Zealanders to a comprehensive range of health and disability services. With more than 700,000 people living and working in rural areas, the services we provide on the mobile surgical unit – Te Waka Hauora are clearly focussed on ensuring these patients are treated where they live and work. Our promise is to deliver a safe, friendly and quality-driven service.
COVID-19 service status
In response to COVID-19 we have implemented a number of aditional precautions, but our daily rural schedule is operating normally.
Most education sessions including all webinars will continue. More information available here.
Rural health professionals are supported with both hands on clinical training, and education programs which are delivered through video conferencing.
We produce regular webinars covering a wide range of health content. Webinars are free to attend, and are open to all health providers in NZ.
Established in 2002, we are a private company which is funded by the Ministry of Health to provide health services primarily to people living and working in rural NZ.
