Whānau can access Te Piki Oranga Māori Health Services Online

Health providers and whānau can now sign up to health services provided by Te Piki Oranga through its new website, which was launched earlier this month.

The new website, www.tpo.org.nz, provides a snapshot about the following services and it can also be used to access an online referral form:

  • Diabetes, Cardio Vascular Disease, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)/Asthma, Cancer

  • Cervical screenings

  • Mental health

  • Addiction services

  • Outreach immunization

  • Health Promotion/Education

  • Te Matapihi / Suicide Prevention Education

  • Te Hā / Smoking cessation

  • Well child / Tamariki Ora

Sign up to receive news and updates to the quarterly e-pānui using the following quick link http://eepurl.com/chOmdr which is also available on the Te Piki Oranga website home page.

Te Piki Oranga’s Tumuaki/General Manager Anne Hobby says, “It’s important to us that accessing our services is easy – for health providers wanting to refer whānau, as well as whānau wanting to self-refer. The online referral form goes directly to the clinic/hub that whānau prefer and they will get in touch within 72 hours. People can also print referral forms and send them to us, but we’ve had feedback that the online system will be the easiest way for most people to access our services.”
