Our Community Covid-19 Response

What a fantastic response it has been locally, regionally, and nationally to the Covid-19 Pandemic where we have worked so well together to halt the transmission of this very dangerous virus.

Do not forget however that we are not fully out of the woods so to speak, and now in Level 2, some restrictions remain in place. We still need to miminise social interactions, not meet in groups larger than 10, maintain social distance, and practice infection control, such as regular handwashing.

To ensure that patients and staff are safe, we are continuing to maintain our robust safety guidelines at the hospital and health clinics. Please continue to phone for appointments as normal and you will be given advice on how to access the service. When you arrive at our clinics and hospital, please follow the signage and instructions from staff.

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 / Accident and Emergency services and ten community clinics located throughout the remote regions of Hokianga by an integrated multi-disciplinary team of health practitioners and support staff.

Rawene (or Hokianga) Hospital is one of Northland's Public Hospital services funded by and provided in conjunction with Northland District Health Board.

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:

Public 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).
