These services include:

GP services- provide free healthcare to children under 6yrs.

Well Child - will support you to ensure your child grows to their full potentail.

Hearing screening- your baby will be offered a safe, simple hearing check.

National Immunisataion Register- this register records the immunisation of all children living in New Zealand

BCG-  Tuberculosis (TB) is a highly infectious disease that mainly affects the lungs, your baby will be referred to BCG services if there is a high risk of them getting the infection

Oral Health- dental services will contact you confirming enrolment and contact you when their first visit is due.
