Te Puna Ora o Mataatua has a strong commitment to improving the access to and affordability of all healthcare.
We are pleased to announce from 18 June 2018 all doctors appointments for U18s will be free from Med Central GP Practice (18 years old and under) in Whakatane.
Children and young families are our most vulnerable, especially in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, and this policy aims to provide timely and additional support to this part of the community.
As an enrolled patient at Med Central, they will also be able to access free Nutritionist appointments and discounted rates in our Waka Rangatahi Driving Academy.
Med Central is located on 52B King Street, Kopeopeo, behind Adamsons Pharmacy.
