Refugee Health Service

The Refugee Health Service in Ōtautahi Christchurch and Ashburton is dedicated to ensuring former refugees have access to essential healthcare services. Key aspects of the service include:

  • Connecting with health services: Assisting refugees in finding a general practice, understanding their rights to free medical check-ups, and providing information about eligibility for free healthcare services.
  • Access to free health services: For the first five years in New Zealand, refugees may receive free visits to general practitioners (GPs) and nurses, covering a wide range of health services including maternal care, vaccinations, mental health services, and more.
  • Interpreter services: Free and confidential professional interpreters are available for health appointments to assist those who do not speak English.
  • Eligibility: Free healthcare visits are available to quota refugees, family reunification refugees, community sponsorship refugees, convention refugees, and asylum seekers who have been in New Zealand for less than five years and have a valid Community Services Card.
  • Support with documentation: The Refugee Health Service helps with the necessary documentation required to enrol with a general practice and access health services.

For more information or assistance, health professionals can refer their patients to the Refugee Health Service.
