Ngā Kākano Foundation will remain open during the COVID-19 / Coronavirus shutdown period. Please see important information below:

PLEASE READ - IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

Ngā Kākano will continue to provide GP and essential health services during the shutdown.

Please call 07 573-0660 or text 027 554 1118 if you need a doctors or nurse appointment. All initial appointments are virtual by phone. Do not come to the Clinic unless the GP has asked you to come in.  

Repeat prescriptions will remain possible throughout the shutdown. There is no need to stock-pile your medications.  We can only consider repeat prescriptions when you have one week’s supply left, due to large number of patients contacting us to seek large volumes.

Flu vaccinations are continuing but stock is low. Please enter from the back (Commerce Lane) for a flu vaccination or immunisations.               

Kia kaha, kia maia, kia manawanui 

Tēnā koe! Welcome

Mā te mātauranga kia tipu ako ake ngā rangatiratanga, a ngā tikanga otira te whānau
Building futures through knowledge, leadership, tikanga and whānau

Ngā Kākano has been serving the health needs of whānau for over 30 years. We provide 15 services and programmes that strengthen whānau health, wellness and quality of living. Ngā Kākano services and programmes are available to Māori and non-Māori of all age groups. We are here to assist you and your whānau to be as healthy as possible.

Ahakoa teitei te maunga ka taea te piki, ahakoa nunui ngā ngaru o te tai, ka pakaru te ihu iti o te waka.

Your health is important to us!
Together, no matter how high the  mountain we can scale it. No matter how high the waves of the sea the  prow of the little canoe will break through it.
