The patient and providers service teams support primary healthcare teams to provide the highest quality care to the people of Waitaha Canterbury.  

Through these services, Pegasus plays an important role in making sure health needs are met across the communities, cultural groups, various age groups, and in the geographical areas that it serves. We strive for all people, including Māori, to receive access to equitable health. 

Our specialised teams work closely with our general practices and other primary care providers in the following areas:   

Patient Services

This is a large group of varied specialist teams that provide services that complement or extend the core provided by general practice. 

This includes: 

Residence Youth Health service

This team supports young people living in the Oranga Tamariki residence Te Puna Wai o Tuhinapo  (youth and correctional justice). The team provides primary health care on-site. The service is nurse-led with the support of general practitioners (GPs).  

Tautoko Hauora 

Our kaitautoko (support workers) work with Māori, Pacific peoples', Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD), youth, Rainbow, low income, and those with disabilities. Tautoko Hauora is a service that aims to provide support to individuals who are either not enrolled in a general practice or who are enrolled but not accessing their general practice teams as frequently as required. The team helps identify and manage the barriers that a person or whānau may have in accessing health care.

B4 School Check Coordination team

The B4 School Check Coordination team provides leadership and coordination for all clinical and operational matters of the B4 School Check (B4SC) programme in Waitaha.  We focus on the provision of services to high deprivation populations and to high need, Māori, Pacific peoples', and new migrant children with the expectation that it will contribute to the reduction of health inequalities. The team also manage the Pegasus service delivery which includes a dedicated mobile outreach service.

Our nurses are highly skilled and motivated leaders in primary and community based nursing, and work collaboratively to achieve equitable healthcare access and outcomes for our populations. This is achieved through advocacy, education and shaping or developing policy.

The team works collaboratively with other teams, general practices, pharmacies and other organisations to influence change across the wider health system. We focus on enabling equitable access to health care and equitable health outcomes for key population groups especially Māori.
