Bridging distances for better health

Parliament Buildings, 1 Museum Street, Pipitea, Wellington
Monday 6 May
7am – 6pm

In 2016 we successfully brought together local organisations which provide a much-needed mobile health service to communities around New Zealand. We are excited to be able to do this again in 2024 on Monday 6 May, where we will display a range of mobile health units outside Parliament Buildings in Wellington.

For many individuals, especially vulnerable or ill patients, travelling long distances to access health services poses a significant barrier, often resulting in suboptimal health outcomes. Mobile health services have emerged as a safe and efficient solution to bridge this gap.

Discover first-hand how mobile health units complement and enhance traditional health facilities, ensuring accessible and equitable healthcare services for regional and rural areas while also providing a tool to address high demand in urban areas.

Join us for an exclusive opportunity to tour these state-of-the-art mobile units, connect with our teams, ask questions, and discover their positive impacts on individuals, whanau and communities across the country.

The organisations bringing their mobile units for display are:

  • Waitaha Primary Health 
  • Bee Healthy Regional Dental Service
  • BreastScreen NZ
  • Turanga Health
  • Peke Waihanga
  • Mobile Surgical Unit – Te Waka Hauora
  • Mobile Lithotripsy Unit
  • Mobile Imaging Unit

Ka Ora will also have a presence to showcase their rural telehealth service.
