About Us

Manaia Health funds and co-ordinates services, provides resources and expertise for providers and delivers some specialised primary healthcare services. The PHO also works closely with a number of other health, social services, iwi, sport, housing, education and local community organisations and the local territorial authority, to improve the overall health and wellbeing of our enrolled population. First level primary healthcare is being provided by 21 General Practices and 2 Maori Health Organisations. On 1st January 2011 Kaipara PHO formally joined with Manaia Health, bringing an additional Medical Centre (Dargaville) with 11,000 people into the PHO.

While many of our services are directed towards individuals and illness, we are also focused on issues which impact on the wellness of specific groups and communities within our enrolled population which is approximately 93,000 of whom 24% are Maori.

The PHO has the responsiblity of ensuring that current challenges in community healthcare are being met. These challenges include child and adolescent health, immunisation, mental health and chronic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
