About Tāmaki Health

reception Takanini about page NHG

Tāmaki Health is the management service organisation for the East Tamaki HealthcareLocal Doctors and White Cross network of medical clinics.

We have changed our name from Nirvana Health Group to Tāmaki Health. Our names and logos have changed but our ownership and values stay the same.

Our focus is on helping the network to improve health and wellbeing by offering easy to access, high-quality, affordable services in the community for our diverse patient population.

East Tamaki Healthcare, Local Doctors and White Cross together make up the largest independent primary healthcare group in New Zealand, serving 230,000 enrolled patients across 45 clinics.

Care is provided by clinics across Auckland and New Zealand, employing more than 1,000 staff from multiple ethnicities including about 300 doctors. On any given day, Tāmaki Health providers offer care to 4,000 people.

Tāmaki Health has been a trailblazer in the health sector for more than 40 years. Read more about our history.

We invest heavily in technology and our talented, diverse staff lead the way in wellness and preventive healthcare.

Leading the way in healthcare 

The care our network provides makes a huge difference to the lives of our patients, including a large number of high-needs Pacific and Māori people. In Counties Manukau, we are the largest primary healthcare provider to Pacific people, caring for more than 54,700 enrolled Pacific patients.

We were the first healthcare provider in New Zealand to involve peer health coaches to support diabetes patients, and our inhouse mental health wellness team is a leader in the use of self-management support.

Tāmaki Health is also a leader in the early adoption of the Medtech Evolution PMS software that is used throughout our clinic network to bring continuity, consistency and safety in patient care.

Working as one team

Tāmaki Health network’s teams include GPs, operations managers, nurses, receptionists, clinical assistants and clinical family navigators. Our commitment to work together helps patients to easily access a range of services, including advanced primary care services, and improves patient care. 

Vital community connections

Tāmaki Health works closely with the South Auckland community to better understand needs and respond to them.

We work with schools, churches and community groups making presentations on health topics and delivering health information.

Tāmaki Health also puts out a weekly e-newsletter, Communitycations, to keep the community informed about health news and events.
