Auckland City Hospital
The Kaiatawhai Service
The service is designed to ensure that the cultural and spiritual needs of Māori patients and their whānau are met. Kaiatawhai has teams based at Auckland City and Starship Children's hospitals and the service is individualised according to needs, and staff visit Māori patients to assess how they can best support them. The cultural assessment is based on the following aspects of a patient:
- Te taha tinana (physical).
- Te taha wairua (spiritual).
- Te taha whānau (family).
- Te taha hinengaro (mental and emotional).
The Kaiatawhai service at Starship Children's Hospital is located on Level 2 next to the main entrance, and the hours are Monday to Friday, 8am–8pm; weekends, 11am–8pm.
