Well Child Tamariki Ora Waiheke Health Trust provides free growth and development health checks, health assessments, information, support networks and education for whanau and tamariki from four weeks of age to five years old.
This service includes the ‘B4 School Check’ which is a free health and development check and takes place when a child turns four years old and is the last Well Child check before the child starts school.
This will include a vision and hearing screen for your 4-year old.
Well Child services are provided by registered nurses in your home and at the Waiheke Health Trust at 5 Belgium Street in Ostend.
Referrals to our services can be by your midwife or GP, but self-referrals are welcome – please call reception on (09) 372 8893.
