Day Surgery for Rural NZ

EQUITABLE 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.

PHONE SYSTEM UPDATE

We are currently changing the office phone system and there may be some difficulties getting through. If you know the mobile number of the person you are trying to reach, you may like to try this instead. Thank you for your patience.  

Day Surgery

Mobile Health brings the operating theatre to the doorstep of 25 rural communities with elective day surgery operations on board the mobile surgical unit.

Education

Rural health professionals are supported with both hands on clinical training, and education programs which are delivered through video conferencing.

Webinars

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.
