Health Rotorua

 
“ … Helping people to achieve and maintain healthy lifestyles … encouraging new and innovative solutions to health and wellness … promoting networks …”
 
A primary health organisation, Health Rotorua’s goal is to significantly improve the health and wellbeing of the 71,000 people enrolled with it.

Health Rotorua is about improving, maintaining and restoring health in the primary health care sector by helping people to achieve and maintain healthy lifestyles. Health Rotorua does this by building on the strengths of organised general practice and community health services, targeting groups that have high health needs or poor access to services, encouraging new and innovative solutions to the health and wellness needs of the people in our district and promoting networks of co-ordinated health and wellness services that work well together.

Health Rotorua receives funding from the Ministry of Health, the majority of which goes into subsidising the cost of visits to general practitioners via providers such as the Rotorua General Practice Group and Korowai Aroha. The organisation currently has around 60 general practitioners and 50 practice nurses / managers working out of 16 practices serving a demographically diverse population. Approximately 36 per cent of the people in the district are Maori, so the delivery of culturally appropriate services to Maori is of critical importance. The remaining income goes into a range of programmes designed to help people get the services they need to deal with particular health issues, as well as health promotion to encourage and support people to pursue healthy lifestyles. Health Rotorua contracts with other health providers such as pharmacists and healthy activity providers to extend the range of health services available in the primary health care sector.
