School-based health services

Te Whatu Ora Waikato contracts us to provide school-based health services in high schools, wharekura, teen parent units and alternative education sites. The decile rating of a school determines what services the students are eligible for. If the school your child attends has a school clinic they will provide you with information about the service. School clinics remove some of the barriers that prevent young people from accessing health services, like cost, transport and fear of talking to a health professional. They also provide a way to encourage young people to stay engaged in the health system once they leave secondary school.
