The inspirations of old, the aspirations of the new
Here are we the Primary Health Organisations of

Holding fast, holding firm
As we move forward together we will succeed

To the Iwi, to the esteemed language and descendants
encompassed by the four winds, welcome to the peoples network.

Emergency Numbers

Call 1-1-1 for an Ambulance

What to Expect When You Call 1-1-1

Your 1-1-1 call is answered by a Telecom Operator who will ask you what service you require Police/Fire/Ambulance. Ask for Ambulance.

For people living in the Otaki and Levin free calling area, you will be connected with the Ambulance Communication Center located in Palmerston North.

To call for an ambulance in an emergency: phone 111 (including mobile phones)

People with impaired hearing: phone 0800 16 16 16 (text phone only) or fax 0800 16 16 10

Phone 111

You need to act quickly and decisively, because often getting emergency services to the scene as soon as possible can make a great deal of difference to the outcomes.

If you come across an accident or emergency, or if you are involved in one and are able to call us, there are some simple but very important things you need to do.

An Emergency Medical Dispatcher who has received specialised training to deal with crisis over the phone will answer your call. Be prepared to briefly explain what your exact situation is. The dispatchers today are trained to provide real-time instruction in CPR and life-saving first aid while simultaneously dispatching emergency ambulance resources to your location. Listen to the dispatcher and follow their instructions.

The Ambulance has access to a variety of highly trained personnel, specialised medical equipment and vehicles. To ensure that the right people with the right equipment are sent to the correct place the 1-1-1 dispatcher must ask specific questions. Sometimes in an emergency, it may seem like these questions are being asked to determine whether or not you need help. In actuality, they are being asked to determine the level of help you need. Remember trained dispatchers never ask questions that are unnecessary.

The dispatcher will ask you 'What is the exact address of the emergency' and will repeat your address back to you. Please listen to make sure that they have your correct address. They know how important it is to do it 'right' and not just 'fast'.

There are four universal questions that the dispatcher needs to ask in order to put their knowledge and experience to work for you quickly and effectively:

* What is the problem, tell me exactly what happened.
* How old is she or he
* Is he or she conscious
* Is he or she breathing

Getting this critical information typically takes less then 30 seconds. After that, you may be asked to do nothing, get out of an unsafe environment, or stay on the line and assist in providing care for the ill or injured person.

In all cases, remember the most important thing you can do when calling 1-1-1 is to Listen Carefully. Always do what the dispatcher asks of you. Don't tell them to hurry they already know that. Remember that every question they ask has an important reason for it.

When To Call 1-1-1 For Help

Research has shown that people have difficulty recognising medical emergencies or underestimate their seriousness and fail to call for help. Remember, if you THINK you or someone you know is experiencing a medical emergency call 1-1-1 immediately. Some examples would be if someone is:

* Experiencing an allergic reaction of any kind
* Having a seizure or convulsion
* Experiencing jerking movements they cannot control
* Burned over an area larger than the palm of your hand
* Electrically burned or shocked
* Severely injured or is a victim of trauma or an attack
* Bleeding or spurting blood and you can't get it to stop
* Not breathing or having difficulty breathing
* Gasping for air or turning blue
* Choking and the obstruction cannot be cleared
* Unconscious, faints, is not alert or is making funny noises
* Experiencing chest pains, constricting bands, or crushing discomfort around the chest area-even if the pain stops
* Experiencing unusual numbness, tightness, pressure, or aching pain in their chest, neck, arm or upper back

The signs and symptoms of a medical emergency can be vague or unusual. For example, the classic symptom associated with a heart attack is an uncomfortable, dull feeling of pressure or tightness in the chest. However, some people experiencing a heart attack may simply feel light headed, short of breath, sick to their stomach, or have a cold sweat. Less well-known symptoms such as these may be dismissed as a minor illness.

Another reason that people fail to call 1-1-1 in an emergency is that those who are ill or injured are frequently in denial.

A full diagnostic hearing test (also known as a hearing assessment) is non-invasive, completely painless and takes less than an hour. Our hearing tests are a series of simple checks in a sound-treated environment. We test each ear's ability to hear pure tones. There's no reason to ignore hearing loss, so if you think you have a hearing problem, having your hearing tested by a Bay audiologist is a great idea.
 
You don't need to see a doctor before making an appointment with us, just contact us to book a time.
 
Once the hearing test is completed, Bay Audiology staff will send your hearing test results and a report to your doctor. If you require hearing aids, your audiologist will explain everything that's involved in selection and fitting.
 
Your hearing assessment fee may be covered by insurance (just check your policy), ACC or by other government assistance. Click here to find out more.

History:The Eketahuna Health Centre was formed in March 1988 due to the resident Drs (Dr Iyengar) intention to move over seas and the Eketahuna county council inability to attract a replacement. Dr Iyengar in association with her two practice nurses and support from Eketahuna County Council and Palmerston North principal Public Health nurse, development an alternative model of primary health care service creating a community nursing service backed up be the Pahiatua Drs. It was the only nurse based health centre of its kind in the country at the time and opened 1st April 1988. It was perceived the health centre as having the broad goal of improving health awareness and illness prevention within Eketahuna and surrounding areas while ECC were committed to providing assessable primary health care services for the communities and ratepayers.

The Eketahuna Health Centre is now managed by a trust, whose members volunteer their time and energy. It is made up of 9 elected members from the local community and surrounding districts. The Centre is the only provider of primary health services within 30kms for the local population and outlining areas.

The Trust employs 2 registered nurses whose services are free to the people who access the centre. The services provided with no cost to the client include, blood pressure, child immunisations, blood tests, dressings, including acc cases, weight, diabetes and heart disease management. Women may have free smears and also support and advice of all other health issues that may arise. Home visits are made where necessary for urgent consultations are also made where clients are unable to attend the clinic. There is also access to free family counselling,( provided by a registered counsel or) free budget advice, food bank, with petrol assistance when required.

The 2 registered nurses along with the Health centre co-ordinator run regular classes and courses eg exercise class, walking group and a monthly meeting for the over 65 year olds cooking demonstration, self awareness and many more.

We also provide a community base for the district with the provision of REAP courses and accommodate a visiting Doctor Plunket, physiotherapist, and government agencies (IRD WINZ)
The Eketahuna health Centre became an incorporated charitable in December 1991. Our premises are leased at 1 Bengston St from the Tararua District council.

Kia Ora, I am the Youth Co Ordinator at the Manawatu Horowhenua Tararua Diabetes Trust situated at Health on Main Street, Palmerston North.

My service provides support and advocacy for children/youth under the age of 25 years who have diabetes and their families.

I organise social activities for families with children/youth who have diabetes.  In the past year some of these have included Lazertag, Flip City and Inflatable World.

The Trust also organises a Family camp once a year and a Youth camp bi-annually. The Youth camp is a camp for children with diabetes (between the ages of 8-13yrs) and is overseen by a medical team. The children take part in outdoor activities whilst learning how to better self-manage their diabetes – all within the context of having fun!

We also hold Parent / Whanau Support groups enabling parents/whanau to meet others who are walking the same path. These are held regularly in Levin, Feilding, Palmerston North and Whanganui.

For the older youth Year 9 and up we have “get togethers” at Youthspace in Palmerston North. These are usually held on a Friday night and give teens and young adults a chance to hang out, socialise and for once feel they are not alone!  Other events are also organised such as Go-Karts / Ten Pin Bowling.

For young adults 18-30yrs we organise a couple of dinners and “get togethers” at cafes during the year.

If any of these activities appeal to you or family/youth please feel free to contact me.

 

I am also available to come and meet you, your child/and or youth either in your home or in our office and support you in any way I can.  I look forward to meeting you.

Whenever possible we make appointments at a time to suit you.  With emergencies etc, this is not always possible, and you can help us by:

Plan your appointments ahead of time for regular check ups.
Tell us how many people will be seeing the Dr at the appointment time.
Tell us if you think you may need extra time - insurance medical, minor surgery, counselling

ALL ACC forms, extensions on physio, certificates require an appointment with the Dr
WINZ forms need an appointment with the Dr unless you have been seen in the previous 3 months.
If an emergency arises, it may cause the Dr / Nurse  to run behind schedule. Please try to be tolerant- it may be you who needs the attention some time.  Enquire if you are concerned about any delay.
Our Practice Nurses are available for consultations by appointment - you may occasionally "Catch" them if you do "Pop In" without an appointment , but pre booked consultations do take priority.   It will be of great assistance to the Practice Nurses if you do make an appointment time to see them. 
We have a Practice Nurse available to do cervical smears.
We offer a full vaccination service - childhood & adult.  Some of these require an appointment with both the Dr and the Nurse, some with the Nurse only.  Please enquire when you phone for the appointment.

Hours:
Monday - Friday 8.30am - 5.30pm

Services available:
The Cook Street Health Centre provides General Practice for you and your family.

Joining and Leaving the Practice
When you join the practice it is important that we review your medical history and perform a medical examination in order to provide the best possible care for you. You will be invited to have an initial appointment with the doctor. We can request your notes from your previous doctor with your permission and you will be asked to sign a form for this.

If you leave the practice, please let us know so that we can cancel reminder notices and keep our records up to date. Your new doctor will request your notes from us once you have authorised this.

Enrolment
The principle of enrolment is crucial to the government's primary health care strategy. Ensuring that patients obtain their health care from one general practice will undoubtedly help make their care more efficient and effective. There is a lot of evidence that continuity of care results in better health.

Some of the key points about this system are:

It is important to understand the principles of enrolment. For patients who are enrolled with us, we ask that you try to obtain your health care from us, except after hours. The system encourages this partnership (and provides a financial penalty for us if you consult other practices). An information brochure is available which explains the details about enrolment: please ask at the desk if you wish to see this.

Privacy
From time to time, in the course of treatment, we may need to provide your details and medical history to other health providers, such as specialists and hospitals.  We will ensure that your health information is only seen by people who are involved in your health care (such as a staff and specialists that we refer you to).  We will always ask for your consent before transferring any identifiable medical information about you to someone who is not involved in your health care. We provide the PHO and the Ministry of health with a list of our enrolled patients so that we can obtain subsidies on your behalf. This information includes your name, address, date of birth, ethnicity, and the dates when you see the doctor or nurse.  No identifiable medical information is provided without your consent. In all cases, your privacy is protected by the medical ethics of confidentiality, the provisions of the Privacy Act 1993, and the Health Information Privacy Code 1994.  We are aware of these privacy requirements and work within policies and procedures developed by the PHO to uphold them at all times.  We value the confidentiality of your health information.

Appointments
Appointments are usually made for 15 minutes. Please be considerate of other patients if you have several problems which may require more time than one appointment allows. You are welcome to book a double appointment if you think this is necessary, and this will carry an additional charge.

We try to ensure that you are able to see your regular doctor as this maintains continuity of care. It is therefore best if you telephone ahead to make an appointment. If there is a significant delay you may be offered an appointment with another doctor. Please tell the receptionist if your problem is urgent.

If you have made an appointment which is no longer needed, please ring us at least 2 hours beforehand so that it can be made available for another patient. We discourage our patients from turning up without an appointment.

After Hours
This service is provided through City Doctors at 22 Victoria Avenue from 5.30pm to 8.30am weeknights and from 5.30pm Friday to 8.30am Monday

Home Visits
If you need a doctor to call at your home, please phone early in the day if possible.

Consultations and Emergencies:
We have a modern, well-equipped building with a range of treatment areas to deal with your accident or medical problem quickly and efficiently.

Maternity Care
Our doctors do not act as Lead Maternity Carers (LMC's) but do provide early antenatal care and liaise with local midwives and obstetricians over ongoing care in pregnancy, labour and the postnatal period.

Immunisation
A full range of vaccinations are offered for children and adults.  This includes routine childhood immunisations, tetanus boosters, flu injections and travel vaccinations.

Surgical Procedures
Minor surgical procedures such as mole removal are performed at the centre. A double appointment is required. Liquid Nitrogen treatment is available for warts and other skin conditions during our normal opening hours. This will involve an extra cost. Please feel free to ask for a quote.

Prescriptions
While it is convenient for patients to phone for prescriptions, we need to follow careful guidelines for safety and legal reasons. You will need to be seen by the doctor at regular intervals. It is best if possible to talk to the practice nurse about your needs as this allows her to look in your file and check the request. If she is busy the receptionist may take the request but the nurse may need to ring you back if there is a query.

We will not give prescriptions for new medicines without seeing you except in extreme circumstances. For regular medications we may require that you have your blood pressure checked if appropriate or if you have not been seen for some time we will require you to come in and have a consultation. If the nurse advises you that an appointment is necessary in order to get a repeat prescription, she is following clearly set out protocols designed to ensure the safe and responsible administration of drugs. She is not just trying to create business or make your life difficult!

You can request repeat prescriptions by telephone,  or fax. Remember to include enough detail about the name and dosage of the medicine, and provide contact details so that a nurse can contact you if needed. The doctors write the prescriptions at the end of the morning and afternoon sessions. Therefore if you ring for a prescription in the morning it will usually be ready around 2pm and if you ring in the afternoon we cannot guarantee that it will be ready until the next morning.

If you want the prescription faxed it is useful for us if you have the name of the chemist available and if possible their fax or phone number. If you require your prescription by a certain time it is again best if you can talk to the practice nurse regarding this. We cannot fax prescriptions to private numbers; they have to be faxed to a chemist. There is an extra charge for faxed prescriptions to allow for the extra administration, including the cost of posting the original copy of the prescription to the chemist.

Repeat prescription request form is available on the website: http://www.cshealth.co.nz/order-prescription/ 

Test results
You are entitled to your results. We are obliged to follow up abnormal results however it is always good to be aware that your tests were processed and the results were normal. If you don’t’ hear from us you are welcome to leave a message for us to get the results to you by phone message, letter or text message.

If you have a cell phone that you can receive a text message on please make sure you have given us your current number and advise us that you are happy to receive a message this way.

Nurse Clinics
Our Practice Nurses have a wide range of skills including wound management, performing cervical smears, blood pressure checks, immunisations, testing hearing and doing ear syringing. They are also able to provide free annual checks for diabetic patients and well person checks

Fees
Our schedule of fees is on display at reception. All fees are GST inclusive. You can pay by EFTPOS, cheque, cash, credit card or Internet banking. Payment is expected at the time of consultation, but if we have to send an account, an extra charge is made to cover administration and postage. Should you have difficulty paying fees or settling an account, please discuss this with your doctor or the reception staff.

Additional charges are made for after hours consultations, home visits and call outs, as well as for all materials used. 

Dealing with Difficulties
If there is a problem about the way you have been treated, or if you are unhappy with any of the services provided, you need to tell us as soon as possible. Please contact the doctor in question, the Practice Manager or outline your concerns in a letter to the practice. You can be assured that problems will be tackled and any complaints dealt with promptly. You also have the right to use independent procedures. These are outlined in a pamphlet from the Health and Disability Commissioner available at the Centre.

Health Checks
We would like to recommend to you our well-person health checks. These are designed to look at inherited, lifestyle and other personal health risks, so that measures can be taken to reduce these in the future. They are particularly aimed at those between the ages of 30 and 70 years who rarely need to see a doctor.

The health check includes filling out a questionnaire, seeing your practice nurse, having tests done and following up with your doctor.

If you would like to have a well person check, please phone the reception desk to arrange a time.

If you have missed more than two appointments within the past 12 months without contacting the medical centre to cancel, you will be required to pay for your appointment at the time of requesting it. This may be an inconvenience but the demand for appointments is very high and difficult to come by. Paying for appointments in advance will hopefully ensure patients do not miss their appointments.

This is our normal procedure when dealing with accounts and appointments. All we ask is that if anyone is having problems paying their account to make contact with us so we can talk about it and come to an arrangement that is acceptable to both parties.

- If you have had a change of address or phone number please tell the receptionist on your arrival.
- Urgent or fit in consultation appointments. Please don't bring up other matters that can be dealt with at a routine appointment

- Fees: Your fees pay staff wages and the expenses of the Medical Centre.  Payment on the day of the consultation would be appreciated.  We have EFTPOS facilities or can arrange for a bank number for automatic or internet payments.

We deal with an extremely high volume of repeat prescriptions so please ring well in advance of needing them, preferably between 11am and 4pm.  A $15 fee for this service is charged.  See Practice Nurse for these requests.

Our nurse provides services on Monday, Tuesday, & Thursday 11.00am till 5.00pm

Her time is precious with us.
Please make an appointment.

Results:
IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CONTACT US FOR YOUR RESULTS

Our Practice Nurse is available to give out your results between 11.00am - 4.00pm
We endeavour to contact you with any abnormal results, but ask that you still ring for your results if have not heard from us.

For Overseas Travel: The vaccinations need to be ordered and paid for prior to administration.  As they should be given 4 weeks prior to travel you will need to see the nurse and possibly the Doctor in good time to arrange this.

Influenza: This vaccine will prevent epidemic influenza only - not coughs and colds.  It is recommended for all those over 65 and for younger people with important chronic health problems (e.g. Heart or lung disease, diabetes etc.) who are likely to get complications if they get influenza.  (It contains purified fractions of the viruses most likely to circulate each winter and is best given in autumn.)   The Government  will pay the cost for people over 65 years and over for younger people with certain chronic illnesses provided the vaccine is given before the date specified by Government  each year.

Cervical Smears: These are available by doctor or nurse (an appointment is required) and we have a reminder/recall system which can help you keep track.

Suggestions: 
If you have any suggestions for improvements to our services we would really like to hear from you, just mention it to any one of us or drop us a note.

Website: www.fertilityassociates.co.nz

Staff:
Digby Ngan Kee MRCOG, FRANZCOG
... graduated from University of Auckland and completed post-graduate training in Hamilton, Wellington and the United Kingdom. He returned to New Zealand in 1990 and has worked in Palmerston North since that time. Digby combines his work for Fertility Associates with his private gynaecology practice, and an appointment as a part-time consultant at Midcentral Health. Digby has trained in laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery and has particular interests in the surgical treatment of infertility, laparoscopic tubal microsurgery, and the treatment of endometriosis.

Services:
Fertility Associates offers a comprehensive range of private and publicly funded fertility treatments throughout the North Island. Our professional staff is dedicated to providing the optimum help for people having difficulty conceiving a baby. As well as determining the possible cause or causes of any subfertility, Fertility Associates provides fertility treatments to the highest possible standard. These treatments of male and female infertility include IVF (in vitro fertilisation), ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection), donor sperm, donor egg, ovulation induction, insemination using partner's sperm and microsurgery. The assessment and treatments may even be publicly funded if certain eligibility criteria are fulfilled.

Creating a family is not only a medical matter. Infertility brings with it much emotional stress and usually invades every aspect of a person's life. Having a baby can also be an emotionally charged event with many stresses and anxieties along the way.

Infertility involves a series of losses - loss of hopes and dreams, loss of control, loss of a positive self-image, loss of privacy, loss of a feeling of connectedness and belonging and many more. Although these losses are real, they are invisible to others so often people experiencing infertility feel lonely and isolated from friends, family and sometimes from each other. Treatment itself may be a challenge for some people.

At Fertility Associates we recognise the major impact and distress experienced by people who need assistance to create and complete families. Although all our medical and nursing staff are trained to provide support, Fertility Associates also has professional counsellors.

What do counsellors do?
A counsellor can help a couple or an individual feel less alone and can assist people with finding ways to cope with the emotional hurt of infertility. People may decide to talk with a counsellor at different points of their experience.

Perhaps
when first seeking assistance to become pregnant
when wondering what could help
when preparing to begin a particular treatment such as IVF
when undecided as to what to do at times of particular crisis
when the stress and strain feel too much
if a pregnancy is not on-going
if difficulties occur in relationships
when looking at alternative ways to form a family or to stop treatment
when seeking more information
when needing to prepare for applications for approval to the National Ethics Committee on Assisted Reproductive Technologies
when thinking about being a donor or a surrogate, or about using these services

The purpose of counselling will be different for each of these and counsellors use a variety of approaches to address particular needs.

Many people are a bit hesitant about the idea of "counselling" but one of the most common comments returned on our patient questionnaires is how valuable it was seeing a counsellor.

The counselling service is available to anyone independently of the medical services.

Counsellors are also available to talk to other professional or community groups about the emotional aspects of infertility. They will run training programmes for professional groups such as practice nurses, midwives, radiologists and GPs. They are able to assist with parenting issues after infertility and can act as facilitators for relevant self-help or education support networks.

The Palms X-ray offers the very latest in digital technology for x-ray imaging - the first in the Manawatu. These changes enable images to be sent electronically to computer stations at hospitals, specialists and GPs, making the whole process faster and more efficient.

Gone is the former bulky method of film storage, and images are now stored in databanks and can be retrieved at the touch of a button. Any patients requiring plain film x-ray imaging for trauma or other pathology can be expertly accommodated at The Palms X-ray, on referral by a doctor or physiotherapist.

Overview - IWI & Maori
Best Care (Whakapai Hauora) Charitable Trust ('Whakapai Hauora'), is the health, social service and disability service provider arm of Tanenuiarangi Manawatu Incorporated, the mandated iwi authority for Rangitaane O Manawatu.

Tune in on a Monday between 9.00am and 10.00am to listen to our health show. Though Whakapai Hauora is an iwi owned and operated provider, its health, social and disability services are provided to everyone.

Home Support
Arohanui aims, where possible, to enable patients to continue to live at home. Our team of specialist nurses, called Palliative Care Co-ordinators, monitor and support our community-based patients, maintaining close links with others involved, such as general practices and district nurses.

Inpatient Care
Arohanui has a 10 bed purpose-built unit in Palmerston North. Patients are usually admitted to receive treatment for distressing symptoms or for respite care to give their families or caregivers a break. Two beds are also available for day patients. The inpatient unit is the base for Arohanui's interdisciplinary team.

24hr Advice
A Registered Nurse is available 24 hour a day to offer support and advice over the phone to either patients, families or other health professionals. They will contact a doctor or district nurse if needed.

Hospital-based Support
For hospital patients with palliative care needs, Arohanui has set up in partnership with MidCentral Health a Hospital Palliative care Team. This doctor and nurse team at Palmerston North Hospital can offer advice on relief of symptoms, plan discharge home, or arrange transfer to Arohanui Hospice if appropriate.

Day Stay
Arohanui welcomes patients on Tuesdays and Thursdays to their Day Stay programme. Day Stay offers opportunities to rediscover creative skills, try some new activities, and relax in the company of other patients with the support of staff and volunteers. Lunch and a tipple from the drinks trolley are provided.

Outpatient Clinics
To enable specialist follow up after their initial assessment with our medical staff, patients can be seen at our outpatient clinic. The patient's general practitioner will be kept informed of the outcome of these.

Bereavement Support
There is an active Bereavement Support team at Arohanui that provides support for any person, of any age who has suffered the loss of a significant person in their lives. The team is available to provide access to resources to help those who are grieving as they experience difficult times in their journey and encouragement to travel this road in their own way and in their own time.

Palliative Care Professional Education
In support of our partnership with health professionals and support agencies, we offer education sessions and resources in all aspects of palliative care. This component of our service is co-ordinated by our Palliative Care Nurse Educator. Find out more about our Palliative Care Education Program.

Please see our website for more information.

Health Related Questions and Answers for the People of Otaki

Tararua

 

 

 

This information has been developed for Otaki residents by the Kapiti Community Health Group Trust with MidCentral and Capital & Coast District Health Boards, Wellington Free Ambulance and St John's Ambulance Services to enable better understanding about your choice of where to go for services, how to get there, and why some boundary restrictions exist.

HOSPITAL CARE AND CHOICE:

Q: If I need hospital care, I would like to go to Wellington as my health records and family support are there. Is this possible?

A: Yes. In general it is expected that people from Otaki/Te Horo will receive their specialist care from MidCentral DHB. However, people can receive care from Capital & Coast if it is more convenient to them. You just need a referral from your Doctor to the appropriate specialist in Capital & Coast.

SPECIALIST OUTPATIENT SERVICES:

Q: If I go to the Otaki Medical Centre to see a doctor, can I be referred to a specialist at Kapiti, Kenepuru or Wellington?

A: Yes. In general it is expected that people from Otaki/Te Horo will receive their specialist care from MidCentral DHB. However people can be referred to Capital & Coast if it is more convenient for them.

Q: I use the Waikanae Health Centre. Can I be referred to Palmerston North hospital if necessary?

A: Yes. It is generally expected that in most cases Otaki/Te Horo people will receive their care from MidCentral DHB in either Levin or Palmerston North.

EMERGENCY SERVICES:

Q: I live in Otaki and my friend lives in Te Horo. In an emergency, can the ambulance take either of us to Wellington Hospital?

A: Generally no but in some situations of high tech need - yes (see below). Ambulance services follow referral protocols that ensure patients are taken to the place of most appropriate care for their condition - this may be Kenepuru, Wellington or Palmerston North. Those living north of Peka Peka Road willin most instances be transported to Palmerston North Hospital by St John Ambulance Service. For reasons of patient safety (that of the immediate patient and that of possible further patients in the next few hours) it is not possible to respond to individual patient preference.

Q: Why do some Otaki/Te Hora people get transferred directly to Wellington Hospital in an emergency and others don't have the choice?

A: The ambulance will only take the patient to Wellington Hospital if that is where the emergency service is located, for example: cardiothoracic or neurosurgery.

Q: If an ambulance can take me to Levin then transfer me to another ambulance that then takes me to Palmerston North, why can't they take me south and transfer me at Waikanae or Paraparaumu to go to Wellington?

A: The ambulance will only take the patient southwards to Wellington Hospital if that is where the emergency service is located, for example: cardiothoracic or neurosurgery. Roadside transfers are not encouraged.

Q: Who is the Kapiti EMS? Are their services available to me in Otaki?

A: Kapiti EMS is a free volunteer service provided by Dr Chris Lane and a team of paramedics. EMS carry out advanced intervention at the scene of medical emergency or severe trauma, treating and stabilising patients so they can be taken to hospital by ambulance or helicopter. St John Ambulance will activate their services if necessary through Wellington Free Ambulance.

PRIMARY HEALTH ORGANISATIONS PHOs

The establishment of PHOs in Otaki and Kapiti make no difference to the responses to these questions.

COMMUNITY HEALTH SERVICES

Q: I am about to receive hospital care at Wellington. Am I able to have district nursing care at my home in Otaki afterwards?

A: Yes. MidCentral DHB will provide district nursing services.

Q: I work in Paraparaumu but live at Otaki beach. Can I visit the Kapiti Health Centre and get free physiotherapy there instead of travelling to Levin?

A: Yes.

Q: What health services are available in Otaki?

A: Refer to 'Otaki Health Services' brochure developed by MidCentral DHB. These are available at the Otaki Medical Centre, the Citizens Advice Bureau and the Otaki Library.

Q: If I need mental health services for myself or a member of my Otaki-based family, who will provide the service?

A: Mental health services to the Otaki district are provided by MidCentral DHB.

Q: I live in Otaki township and have just received hospital care at Palmerston North. I want to convalesce in Wellington with my family. Can I get district nursing care there?

A: Yes. If a patient is convalescing at an address within Capital & Coast DHB boundaries then district nursing care is provided by Capital & Coast.

We organise family outings and special events during the holidays, which provide an opportunity for the children / people to identify with others on the spectrum. 

To find out more, we can be contacted via phone, mail or e-mail. Our answer phone is checked regularly and a 'support parent' responds to calls. At Autism New Zealand's Website you can get an update of 'what's on' both nationally and with the local branches.

Excerpt from the website: "What is NA?"

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a global organisation of recovering addicts. NA members are men and women from all walks of life for whom drugs had become a major problem, who meet regularly to help each other stay clean, and recover from the effects of addiction in their lives. The NA programme is one of complete abstinence from all drugs, following a twelve-step programme, and regular attendance at meetings. It is based on a set of spiritual principles that are not associated with a particular religion. Although our steps call for finding and believing in a "power greater than oneself", this is a personal decision for each and every member to make. Experience of our members has shown that the spiritual principles work for all members, from the devoutly religious to the atheist and agnostic.

NA is not affiliated with any other organisation or institution. There is only one requirement for membership, the desire to stop using. There is no cost to attend meetings.

The basic premise of anonymity allows addicts to attend meetings without fear of legal or social repercussions. This is an important consideration for an addict thinking about going to a meeting for the first time. Anonymity also supports an atmosphere of equality, meaning that no individual's personality or circumstance will be considered more important than the message of recovery shared in NA.

Even though our members used a variety of drugs, in NA we speak of recovery from the disease of addiction, rather than specific drugs. We believe that drugs are a symptom of our disease, and recovery from the disease of addiction is through application of the principles contained in the Twelve Steps.

Someone who is still using drugs is welcome to attend NA meetings. Many NA members came to meetings while still using drugs and are now drug-free and recovering today. Often, if a member is still using, he or she will be asked to refrain from speaking during a meeting. Instead, these addicts are encouraged to speak with members before or after the meeting.

Services:
Who are we...
Tararua Family Services was established in 1993 to help support individuals, couples and families/whanau through the provision of counselling and family support services.
We have a long-standing reputation for providing professional & confidential counselling to children, teenagers, adults and couples.
Counselling is provided by qualified and experienced professionals.   We aim to provide services that are sensitive to culture, ethnicity, gender and age.

Who comes to counselling...
Everyone - children, young people, men, women, parents, couples, individuals with personal issues. Couples with difficulties can come alone or together. With families it is useful to see everyone involved, even though only one person may be the focus of concern

How does counselling work...
It's often helpful to talk things over with an independent person who is not going to put pressure on you. Counselling offers support and strategies for dealing with issues which, left unresolved, can create stress or depression. Experienced counsellors can ask questions to help you think about things in new ways and work with you to reach clearer thinking, more options and perhaps new directions. People find counselling helps them to identify their own strategies for moving their life forward and re-gaining their well-being.

What can we help you with...
Low self-esteem, depression, loneliness, worries and fears, family violence, sexual abuse, grief, stress management, conflict resolution, communication, sexual difficulties, new partners, violence (emotional, physical & sexual), behavioral difficulties, school problems, child access and custody, step-family issues, adjusting to teenagers and parenting.

Home-based Family Support...
Families/Whanau can often experience social or economic difficulties such as living in poverty, social isolation, domestic violence or chronic physical or mental health
Our Family Support Services are based on a belief that every person has the potential to rise above a bad situation.  We all have the inner resources to help turn our lives around.
Motivation is the key to unlocking these strengths and this is at the heart of our work.

How can we help you...
Our Family Support Workers are all trained and experienced professionals. We aim to provide services that are sensitive to culture, ethnicity, gender and age.
Most of the time families/whanau are referred to us from government and other community agencies, schools or health professionals.
However, many families/whanau "self-refer" ie: they've heard about our service and want to make positive changes in the way their family lives and works together.
Our Family Support Workers are linked with families/whanau and will visit you in your home on a regular basis.
After initial discussion and assessment of your needs, an agreement is made specifying the range of support you would like.
The Family Support Worker will assist you and your family/whanau to achieve the outcomes you want and set a realistic timeframe for achieving your goals.

What can we help you with...
Our Family Support Workers help parents and their families/whanau to improve how they handle stressful situations and offer emotional support and practical assistance.
This takes the form of helping to establish and maintain children's routines, advising on alternate ways to parent, advising on age appropriate behaviour and discipline for children, assisting with issues relating to the families health and education.

Empowerment is a key factor. Parents and families are supported in developing skills to manage their own lives.

Family Support Workers can also offer support with a range of other issues that confront families/whanau, including:
family stress, family violence, financial problems, family health, sexual abuse, school problems, child access and custody, advocacy on your behalf

How much does it cost...
As a community-based agency we don't set a fee for our services instead we ask clients to make a donation, which they feel they can afford, towards their counselling time.  All donations are tax deductible. Our receptionist and counsellors can guide you through the donation process.

How to make an appointment...
If you would like to make an appointment to see one of our counsellors just phone Tararua Family Services on (06) 374 5029

STOPPING VIOLENCE/ANGER MANAGEMENT PROGRAM.

It is a program designed to help men identify both anger and violence and understand the difference between them.
It is for men who find it hard to feel angry without becoming violent
It is for men who have trouble recognizing and expressing their anger.
It is for any man who wants to give up 'power and control tactics' and establish healthy relationships with other men, women and children in his life.

Remember:

Anger is an emotion that everybody has &
violence is a behaviour that anyone can learn and unlearn.
A violent relationship is defined as any relationship in which one person has become frightened by the other.

MEN'S THERAPY / SELF CHANGE GROUPS:

Currently we have one group operating every week. It runs from 7pm till 10pm in the evening and has a maximum of twelve men in the group. This group offers a place for men to explore issues in their lives in a safe supportive environment.

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY / COUNSELLING:

Individual work may benefit men who are feeling unable to cope with things in their world and require counselling on a one to one basis.

LISTENING & COMMUNICATION SKILLS GROUP:

This course is designed to teach basic listening and communication skills and may help men be assertive rather than aggressive.

FATHERING GROUP:

A group for men who want to be better dads to their children. We will look at our own fathering and exploring what it was like for you as a son, how you would have liked it to be, how you want it to be the same / different for your children.

As the Youth Coordinator my role is to offer support and advocacy for youth under the age of 25yrs who have diabetes.

Twice a year the Trust organises camps, a Family camp and a Youth Camp.  The Youth camp is a camp for children with diabetes between the ages of 8-13yrs.  The Youth camp is overseen by a medical team and the children partake in rigorous activities whilst learning how to better self manage their diabetes all within the context of having fun!
We also hold support meetings regularly throughout the MidCentral district whereby parents of children with diabetes can get to meet others who are in a similar situation and socialise and network.
If any of these activities appeal to you and your family please feel free to contact me. I am also available to do home visits.
I look forward to meeting you and your family.

Services:
A loss and grief support programme for children
Growing Through Grief uses the widely recognized Seasons peer support programme to help children who are grieving. Seasons™ is a programme of peer support groups for children who are experiencing loss or grief, perhaps due to the death of someone close to them, the separation or divorce of their parents, or other major family change.
Seasons groups are available for children aged between 5 and 12. The groups are small, usually just three or four children close in age, with one or two trained adult Companions. Being part of a Seasons group means coming to a one-hour group session, once a week for the length of a term.
The aim is to provide those in the group with a safe time and place of their own, in which they can explore their issues and feelings about loss and change. The approaches used may include music, stories, artwork, games and other activities suited to a particular child, group or age. Topics introduced include feelings, telling our stories, memories, changes, our strengths, and looking ahead. Each programme ends with a Celebration.
Most importantly, Seasons is about peer support - often the greatest benefit is in being with others who are experiencing similar things.
Asked what they would tell other children about Seasons ….. 
 “It’s a lot of fun” – 6 year old girl
“Come it is a good place if you have lost someone and want some help and it is not boring at all! You will absolutely love it! It is very fun” – 9 year old girl
“To come here to learn heaps of things and it will help you” – 12 year old boy
Seasons groups begin early each term, and are held in Dannevirke, Woodville and Weber.
There is a suggested donation of $20 to attend the programme. If this is not affordable, please speak with the co-ordinator.

For more information on Growing Through Grief and the Seasons programme, and on becoming a volunteer for this service, contact Lynne Sorensen on (06) 374 7655 / (027) 828 0854 or email: gtgsouthernhb@seasons.org.nz

Who are Parent to Parent?
Parent to Parent is a support and information network for parents of children with special needs. Support is provided voluntarily by Trained Support Parents who have a child with the same or similar needs.

Formed in New Zealand in 1983, the group has built up a support network that is now nationwide. We are affiliated to similar groups around the world and maintain close links with other organisations and professionals who work in related fields.

Our services are free to families.

Only those who have been there themselves can fully understandCaring for a family member who has a special need is an experience that few parents anticipate or plan for, and one that brings strong emotional responses and challenges in day to day living.

For thousands of New Zealand families, the struggle to meet these challenges is a reality. Often families have to face them without adequate information or support, leaving them feeling isolated and overwhelmed.
 
What can we offer you?
Through a network of regional groups and trained volunteer Support Parents, Parent to Parent provides information and emotional support to families who have a child with a disability, special need or health impairment.
There are more than 3600 different conditions covered by the service, ranging from the very common through to the most rare condition. By contacting Parent to Parent, families can access written information relating to their child's condition, and also receive emotional support through talking with a trained volunteer Support.

Parent who knows and understands from personal experience the challenges, frustrations and special joy that comes from parenting a child with special needs.

Services:
The Hearing Association exists to help the hearing impaired. This includes all those with hearing problems in all forms.

The Hearing Association began as the League for The Hard of Hearing  in 1932. The name was changed to the Hearing Association in 1976.

Since then, the Hearing Association has expanded to 30 branches spread throughout New Zealand. Each branch is a separate incorporated society, the officers being elected by the branch members. This way central organisation is small and the association can operate at low cost.

The Hearing Association is a volunteer organisation receiving no funds from the government and encourages all hearing impaired to become members.

As hearing impairment is often referred to as the "invisible disability", and it is estimated there are 450,000 with hearing problems in one form or another, if they all joined we would have a huge membership!

Branches offer support to all these, members and non-members alike. Free hearing tests are provided in conjunction with LIFE Unlimited, which provides the trained therapists many of whom work from our branch premises.

The Hearing Association does not fit hearing aids as these need the expertise of qualified professionals, but it does provide a full range of other assistive devices.

With 30 branches nationwide, the Hearing Association runs public education in the prevention of hearing loss, and looks after the needs of hearing impaired people, socially and in the workplace.

New Zealand Relay (NZ Relay) is telecommunications for people who are Deaf, hearing-impaired, deaf-blind, or speech-impaired.

You can use NZ Relay to make telephone calls to family, businesses, government ministries - anyone who has a phone.

You connect to a Relay Assistant (RA) using a Textphone/TTY to complete calls to or from a hearing person.

The Relay Assistant acts as a bridge relaying the entire conversation between you and your caller.
