IMPORTANT NOTICE: Nga Kakano Family Health Practice

Tena koe, as an enrolled patient of Nga Kakano Family Health Practice we write to inform you that our GP service is joining a new Primary Health Organisation called Nga Mataapuna Oranga (NMO).

This is an exciting pathway forward for Nga Kakano and we want to take this opportunity to treasure you as a valued patient and that health care services here will remain unchanged.
However, with the shift to a new PHO you will have the choice to either remain a patient of ours or to enrol with another GP provider elsewhere. If you decide to remain with Nga Kakano, we will need you to sign a new enrolment form for NMO.
Please make contact with us should you require any further information on the move.

Traffic Light System

Our region will enter the orange level of the traffic light system.  This means we will need to follow the guidelines under the orange level, which are:
At Orange, there will be community transmission of COVID-19, with increasing risks to vulnerable communities, and pressure on the health system.
At this setting, whānau can continue to do everyday activities. There are some restrictions in place to limit the spread of the virus and protect vulnerable people, but you can go to work, school, gyms, church, restaurants, and many more places.
Most businesses can open with no restrictions on numbers if they choose to follow My Vaccine Pass requirements, and only allow fully vaccinated people to enter.
If they choose not to follow My Vaccine Pass requirements, there will be limits on the number of people who can be in a venue at one time.
Gatherings like tangihanga and weddings will be limited to 50 if vaccine passes are not used, otherwise there is no limit.
As with Red, at Orange you will be legally required to provide your My Vaccine Pass to enter places that have vaccination requirements in place, this will not include basic needs services such as supermarkets, public transport, and essential health care.
You can learn more about Orange on the Unite Against COVID website.
