We are having our first kaumātua health day back up at the rūnanga in May. After nearly two years of being hosted by the Salvation Army here in Gore it’s a great feeling to come home. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Gore Salvation Army for the use of their facilities and for hosting our Kaumātua Health Days. We may not have been able to keep these days running if it weren’t for the support from the Salvation Army and their staff/volunteers.

Nurse-Led clinics

These are also being run back on site here at the rūnanga. The new clinic room that we added during the rebuild is being used to its full potential.

Nurse-Led clinics can provide a range of services including:

  • Tamariki Ora checks
  • Rangatahi checks
  • Cervical smears
  • Sexual health checks and contraception advice
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Weight monitoring
  • Blood sugar and blood pressure checks
  • Heart, diabetes and breathing checks to identify your risk of illness
  • Access to a podiatrist
  • Access to a dietitian
  • Helping you develop a health plan to meet your goals
  • Helping you know who and what is available to meet your health needs.

Te Kākano nurses are happy to see you for any health advice, education or support. They will work with other health providers (for example your GP or local hospital) to enable the best care for you. Contact Nadine on 021 915 487 or email: [email protected] if you have any questions.
