Total Healthcare Charitable Trust is an Auckland primary health organisation (PHO) that contracts the delivery of health services to more than 220,000 patients in Counties Manukau, Auckland and Waitemata district health board areas.
It serves nearly 80,000 Pacific patients, including 54,700 in the Counties Manukau area making it the largest primary health provider to Pacific in South Auckland.
A high proportion of our patients are high needs, which means we understand how to deliver high-quality, convenient and affordable services 24/7 to people from a range of different backgrounds and circumstances.

We are proud to have committed $5 million of funding over the past five years to supporting mental wellness for patients. Our clinics in Glen Innes and Dawson Rd (Flat Bush) have been sites for a trial of a new integrated primary care wellbeing programme.
On 8 September Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Minister of Health David Clark made an announcement at the Dawson clinic that the Government would provide funding for clinics that have been trialing the new model of care. Read about the funding announcement.

Important information about measles
Measles is a serious illness and it's on the rise in Auckland communities. Have you and your whānau had the measles vaccination?
The vaccination is free if you are aged 1 to 50 years and have not been immunised or you are unsure whether you have been immunised. It is safe to have the vaccine again if you are unsure whether you have already been immunised.
If you think you have measles it is important to see your doctor but please phone ahead to the clinic first. This helps to stop people sitting in a waiting room potentially spreading the disease to other people.
Health coaching changes lives
Total Healthcare has produced a video to showcase patient stories about their experiences with the health coaching and self-management courses we contribute funding to.
Asking patients to create their own stepping stones to improve their health and using everyday language, not medical jargon, is a winning recipe.
It’s proving a game changer in helping people to better manage their health, including diabetes and mental wellness.
The trained health coaches are peers who are multicultural and share similar languages and cultures to the people they help.
Total Healthcare’s use of peer health coaches to help diabetics is a New Zealand first.
