Health Care Home at Karori Medical

Karori Medical Centre is one of the first medical centres in the Capital and Coast DHB region to be selected to implement the Health care Home model of care.

Dr Jeff Lowe said the Karori Medical Centre was proud to be selected in the 1st tranche of practices to lead the development of the Health Care Home in CCDHB.

“We believe people should live well with their family and whanau within the community. The Health Care Home is a key to getting people well and keeping them well closer to home.

Capital and Coast DHB chair Virginia Hope says, the Health Care Homes work programme aims to help GPs to change the way they provide care to provide patients with better, quicker access, and to avoid patients having to make unnecessary trips to hospital.
