It has two large provider practices, Karori Medical Centre in Wellington, and Ropata Medical Centre in Lower Hutt. As part of the Government’s Primary Health Care Strategy, Cosine manages the Primary Health Care funding from the Ministry of Health, and works with its providers to plan and deliver primary healthcare services to individuals enrolled with the practices. It works closely with the local District Health Boards; Capital and Coast DHB and Hutt Valley DHB.

Cosine  is a Charitable Trust, governed by a Board of Trustees. There are eight Trustees appointed to represent community, providers, and local Iwi. The Trustees are committed to establishing a Board that provides excellence in governance and is efficiently supported by the member practices’ management teams. The Board utilises the clinical skills of its member practices together with the community input and is independently lead by a Chair with governance expertise.
