Hokianga Health

Primary Healthcare Service


Opononi Clinic


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.
