After-Hours Telehealth Service

We are pleased to announce that Ngā Kākano Foundation has joined the Practice Plus Telehealth Network for After-Hours care.

What is Telehealth?

Telehealth or virtual healthcare provides a way of having an appointment with a doctor without seeing them in person. It’s sometimes also called e-consultation.

Telehealth involves having a video call where you can see a healthcare provider such as your doctor and talk about your condition just as you would if you were in the same room.

What is Practice Plus?

Practice Plus has been developed between Tū Ora Compass, Pinnacle Health Network, Think Hauora and Te Awakairangi Primary Health Organisations to increase access options for primary care. It involves a same day, after hours service in partnership with our GP network to secure a continuity of care between a virtual GP service and a patient’s regular GP team.

There is no need for patients to download an app to access this service. Practice Plus is accessible through our website.

When is the after-hours service available?

Monday-Friday from 5.00pm to 10.00pm and Weekends from 8.00am – 8.00pm.
