- Medical care is provided by the resident’s choice of General Practitioner – although a Home Doctor service is available by a local Doctor who cares for many of our residents and also provides a Mon. – Fri. Accident and Emergency service. ( Waihopai Health Service ).
Our Clinical Nurse Manager liases closely with the health professionals involved in our residents care and arranges appointments and visits as required either on a routine or acute basis.
- The cost of all medical care is the responsibility of the Resident.
(both routine and acute care – unless the cost is covered by SDHB or ACC ).
If residents are not able to visit the Doctors surgery – a “Home Visit” will be arranged. A “Home Visit” is more costly than attending a clinic appointment.
