Awhi consultations and the Mātauranga Model of Care

Awhi consultations are an important part of the Mātauranga Model of Care.

The Awhi places you at the centre of our predominantly nurse-led model of care.

Awhi consultations are offered to patients of all ages who are not concerned their case is URGENT or COMPLEX.  

Awhi consultations are nurse-led and incur a fee for all patients who have not opted into our subscription service. Please see our fees page for detailed information about our fees and subscription service.

Before an Awhi is booked you will have already discussed your case with a GP.

Awhi consultations offer several advantages over delivery of care via Standard General Practitioner Consultations as they are:

nurse-led but delivered by the whole general practice team

  • the nurse may request support and advice from the GP

places the whole person at the centre of the equation

  • incudes appreciation of wider determinants of health   

an important part of the Mātauranga Model of Care incorporating:

  • free GP contact earlier in your presentation,
  • and free GP care for patients who remain concerned their case is URGENT or COMPLEX
