Kawakawa Bay Orere Health Clinic Inc
Primary Healthcare Service
Welcome to Kawakawa Bay Orere Health Clinic.
We are a predominantly rural based, nurse led clinic. This facility is for the use of our local community. It is run by a voluntary committee who spend a great deal of time fundraising and organising the best equipment and service they can.
We need your support to be able to keep up the standard we have for the clinic.
Subscriptions are $50 per family per year and $25 for a single person. This subscription entitles you to discounted or free nurse visits. It helps maintain and continue to provide a high standard of healthcare in our community. You may not have used the clinic before but it is always there when the need arises so PLEASE SUBSCRIBE NOW! and know that you can call on the clinic in any situation.
The clinic is staffed by local registered nurses working part-time. The Clinic Committee also oversees the First Response Team and supplies them with all their equipment.
A beautician and massage therapist is available by appointment. Please phone Irene at 2922982 or 0221536009 or firstname.lastname@example.org
