NorthTec Health Centre

 

Free, friendly, confidential and convenient healthcare.

The Student Health Centre (Te Whare Hauora), based at Raumanga campus, is staffed by experienced Registered Nurses who offer a comprehensive range of professional and confidential health services. Our aim is to provide high quality health care in an environment sensitive to your spiritual, cultural, emotional and physical well-being. We value your learning success and the service aims to keep you healthy and active. 

Whether you have the flu, feel stressed, need contraception,  or just a friendly face, you will find the help you need from the nursing team at the health centre. Don’t wait until you’re feeling unwell – take advantage of the centre’s wellness programmes and benefit from cervical screening, vision and hearing testing or help to quit smoking. There are no charges for NorthTec students. With confidentiality guaranteed, the health centre is a great first step for any health problem. If you need referral to a GP or other service, this will be organised for you – no hassle.

If you are a student at another campus, drop in when you are in Whangārei or give the Health Nurses a call.
