Total Healthcare’s Annual Report out now
It is with pleasure that the Total Healthcare Charitable Trust Board of Trustees presents its 2015/16 annual report.
Total Healthcare contracts Nirvana Health Group for the provision of a wide range of management services.
Last year, Nirvana Health’s clinical providers (East Tamaki, White Cross, West Auckland, Mt Roskill Healthcare) offered 16 clinics to more than 100,000 patients in Counties Manukau, about 80% of which are deemed high needs, and 13 clinics in Auckland and Waitemata districts to another 90,000 patients.
John Key praises Nirvana Health Group
Prime Minister John Key and National Mt Roskill by-election candidate Parmjeet Parmar made a stop on the campaign trail at Mt Roskill Healthcare’s Richardson Rd clinic this month.
Mr Key praised Total Healthcare’s medical provider Nirvana Health Group, saying the organisation is “top class”, “cutting edge”, and efficient, and he wishes to see more providers like Nirvana Health across New Zealand.
The guests toured the facility, met with staff and patients and enjoyed brief speeches and refreshments. Mt Roskill Healthcare GP and Director Dr Rajiv Sood invited Mr Key to the 25th anniversary of the clinic as a fitting tribute to staff and patients.
