Kā Ora

Kā Ora Telecare provides people living in rural areas with a quick and easy solution to connect with a healthcare professional for after hours medical advice and treatment.

How does it work?

The service is open 5pm to 8am (evening and overnight) on Weekdays, and 24 hours in Weekends and Public Holidays. You can connect with the Kā Ora Telecare team by:

 Calling 0800 2 KA ORA (0800 252 672)

You will first be greeted by a Kaiawhina or a Nurse. The team will assess your health needs, and you can either see a Clinician directly or you may also choose to schedule an appointment later in the evening.

Booking an Appointment online through the Ka Ora Telecare Website.

Available from 5pm to 10pm weekdays and 8am to 10pm weekends and public holidays. By booking an appointment, you will have a specific appointment time to connect directly with the medical team over phone or video.

If you need an urgent appointment after 10pm, please directly call the 0800 2 KA ORA number to connect with the overnight team.
