Our Vision: Wairarapa – He Waiora | Wairarapa – A Place of Wellness

We can support you and your whānau to achieve this vision by walking beside you on a path to wellness.

Whaiora offers a wide range of kaupapa hauora Māori services to our Wairarapa community, including:

  • a Very Low Cost Access Medical Centre for our Masterton residents;
  • a range of health and social services aimed to support the wellness of our Wairarapa communities. We provide these services to clients living between Pukaha Mt Bruce and the Remutaka Ranges, and we can visit you in your home (at no cost to you).

Kaikōkiri waiora, our wellness professionals, include a team of GPs, registered nurses, qualified social workers, educators and community health workers.  You will receive quality health, education and/or social services from our team of caring professionals who will support you to become well and stay well. 

Whaiora's services are private and confidential. We support your choices to improve and manage your health. Sometimes this means working with you to create a wellness plan. We can also help you access a range of external support services.

While we operate from a uniquely Māori base, our services are available to all.



Whaiora has suspended face-to-face services to ensure Wairarapa whānau and tamariki remain safe. We are working on new ways of providing services to ensure no one feels isolated or alone. Our whānau will continue to be supported.

Our medical service is open; however, we will be operating in a different way. Please DO NOT come to Whaiora Medical Centre. Please ring first on 0800 494 246. We will make a plan with you first and advise you over the phone on the next steps.

Our kaimahi will continue to support you throughout the next 4 weeks. They'll be in contact with you either by phone, email or video link.


Sun Protection Alert

Summer may be officially over but UV rays still remain high.

The Sun Protection Alert tells you the time each day when you need to protect your skin and eyes.

It’s a good time to get your skin checked for anything that’s changed over the summer. If you have any concerns about your skin please call us to book an appointment.
