Child & Whānau Support - Tautoko Hauora Service 

Empowering tamariki and whānau to access primary healthcare and social services in Waitaha Canterbury

This service aims to support the social, behavioural, developmental needs, and wellbeing of tamariki aged 0-14 years. 

We work alongside your general practitioner (GP) and offer up to three home visits or phone sessions to: 

  • Understand and assess the needs of your tamariki and whānau
  • Provide short term interventions 
  • Collect information for your GP for ongoing referrals 
  • Link whānau and caregivers to services and agencies for ongoing support. 

This service is for those who have concerns about the health, behaviour and wellbeing of their tamariki. 


  • Whānau who are Māori, Pacific, Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD), Youth, Rainbow, low income, and those with disabilities (all ages) where there are tamariki aged 0-14. 
  • People who are currently enrolled with a Pegasus Practice.

Talk with your doctor or nurse about a referral to this service.

B4 School Check 

The B4 School Check is free for all four year olds and is the last of the Well Child/Tamariki Ora health checks for your tamaiti (child). 

It is a chance to have your child's health and development checked and is an opportunity for you to talk with a registered nurse about your tamaiti and ask about things important to you. 

It’s a good idea for your tamariki (children) to have their B4 School Check soon after their fourth birthday, as that leaves enough time to follow up if needed before they start school. 

Youth sexual health

Free sexual health consultations are available for young people aged 20 and under. Talk to your general practice team for more information.
