Important Information

Tena koe, our GP service is joining a new Primary Health Organisation (PHO) called Ngā Mataapuna Oranga (NMO).

This is an exciting pathway forward to Ngā Kākano. 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. If you decide to remain with Ngā Kākano, we will need you to sign a new enrolment form for NMO.
