Convenient Care Clinic
There are 2 consultation rooms to support whanau which will help cut down your wait times.
The clinic is located in Rotorua’s Work and Income offices in Pukuatua St, and the nurses at the Convenient Care Clinic see anywhere between 15 and 25 people daily (500-700 monthly) with medical needs, some serious.
The clinic, set up as part of Community Link in January 2010 on a two-year pilot under the umbrella of Korowai Aroha, offers services to anyone needing assistance, not just beneficiaries or low-income earners. But they don’t write prescriptions or give out medical certificates.
Families were struggling to get the medical help they needed, with mild conditions left until they became serious medical issues, babies left un-immunised and contagious illnesses left to spread, Mrs Mear said.
The nurses offer quit-smoking help, vaccinations, infection treatment, dressing of minor wounds, blood pressure and weight checks as well as pregnancy and STI treatments along with cervical smears, health checks and education.
