Community Health Service

Description

To support the work of our general practices, Pinnacle also directly delivers some services in the community including screening, mobile immunisation and B4 school nurses.

Support to screening - In the Waikato, we offer screening support services for BreastScreen Aotearoa and the National Cervical Screening Programme. 

Mobile immunisation service - In the Waikato, we have a team who help to achieve immunisation targets by following up families/whānau who have children that have not accessed health services for immunisations, or who have missed immunisations. 

School-based health services - Waikato DHB contracts us to provide school-based health services in high schools, wharekura, teen parent units and alternative education sites.

Pinnacle also provide Stop Smoking Services via Once and For All and Primary Mental Health Services in the Waikato region.
